Car giveaway promotes daily attendance at school

Attend school every day and you might win a brand new car!

Southwest High School kicked off it’s fourth annual Senior Walk Car Giveaway earlier this month as part of the school’s attendance initiative. The giveaway is sponsored by North Park Toyota of San Antonio. Two cars will be awarded at the end of the year, one to a student and the other to a District employee.

Eligible graduating seniors must have met all state assessments and be in good standing. Students may receive up to four entries for each of the categories: GPA, Grades, Attendance and Discipline.

Previously, the contest was also open to SW High School teachers, but to keep in line with the district’s theme “Hero’s Journey,” the contest will now be open to all district staff, including bus drivers and cafeteria workers. District staff will not compete with students for the giveaway and will have their own qualifying guidelines.

Each qualifying participant will get a chance to turn the key to a 2014 Toyota Scion next May. Last year’s winners were high school senior Luis Enrique Angel Ayala and Rosalinda Alexander, a teacher from Sun Valley Elementary.

Merle Gothard, general manager of North Park Toyota, offers the cars as incentives to students to reward them for their commitment to being on time at school every day.

The Senior Walk Car Giveaway runs from Oct. 1, 2013 – May 4, 2014.
