SE Missouri Schools Compete in Battle of the Belt Challenge!
Battle of the Belt is an opportunity for students to educate their peers about the importance of buckling up and win prizes for their school! With the Battle of the Belt Competition underway, 43 Southeast Missouri high schools are currently participating in the challenge. In addition, 10 high schools are competing in the public service announcement competition.
Sponsored by the Missouri Coalition for Roadway Safety, this statewide competition will run Oct. 1 to Nov. 8. Cash prizes for schools will be donated by American Family Insurance. Award banners will be funded by the Missouri College of Emergency Physicians.
