Helias Catholic High School was one of three schools to earn a $15,000 top prize in the recent Teen Safe Driver Pledge Program, sponsored by American Family Insurance.

The prize was awarded Tuesday night at half-time of the school's varsity basketball game versus Jefferson City High School.

More than 375 high schools throughout the country participated in the Teen Safe Driver Pledge, an online driver safety program that helps parents and teen-aged drivers discuss safe driving expectations.
