DeKalb High School will divide a $25,000 grant between schools in the DeKalb School District 428.

The school participated in State Farm’s Celebrate My Drive campaign, where teens pledged to drive safely.

The school with the most signatures was eligible for a Kelly Clarkson concert and $100,000. As a runner up, DeKalb won the $25,000 grant.

A $10,000 portion of the grant will be set aside to continue promoting safe driving in the community.
