By: CONRIC PR & Marketing
As part of the 2021 Rock the Road Challenge, a select number of high school-age students throughout Lee County will participate in a driving skills challenge on a closed course. Two winners will receive a $1,000 scholarship, and two runners-up will each receive a $250 scholarship.
"We're excited to be a part of two milestones for local teenagers, getting a driver license and a college education," says Noelle Branning, Lee County Tax Collector-Elect.
To qualify, entrants must be Lee County residents who will be at least 15 years old by Dec. 31, 2020 and must have their Florida learner's license by that date. Drivers who will have obtained their Florida driver license by April 30, 2021 are not eligible to enter. Entrants must also have the consent of their parent or legal guardian, and a parent or guardian must be able to participate in the skills challenge with their teen and vehicle.
