Join the Shift is a safe driving program from Erie Insurance that teaches teens how to make smart choices behind the wheel. The goals of the program are to save lives and encourage safe driving, especially among young drivers, by targeting schools and students with its message. Each fall, students compete against each other and other schools by earning points for completing activities related to safe driving education.
Students can take a safe driving pledge, watch educational videos, read and share articles, and more. The school with the most points at the end of the contest wins a cash prize of $10,000. The top earning student receives a cash prize of $1,500. Shift is much more than a contest; it's a movement of young drivers who are ready and willing to make a change that is long overdue: to reduce the number of teen injuries and deaths that happen behind the wheel.
