A new car for good grades? Program gives high schoolers chance to win

Posted: Updated:

One lucky high school student will be driving away with a big reward for doing well in school this spring.

The Strive to Drive program from Dick Hannah gives high school students a chance to win a new car or $15,000 for keeping their grades up.

For the first time, Dick Hannah is opening the contest up to students in Oregon.

Originally, only Washington state students could participate.

"This program is designed to help students focus on what they're in school to do - to achieve academically," said Paul Dicker, from Dick Hannah Dealerships.

To be eligible to enter, students must attend accredited high schools in the Portland metro area.

"It's a good incentive to keep my grades up and not only for graduation purposes, (but) for winning a free car. Who wouldn't want to win a free car, right?" said Pasha Hashemi, a senior at Union High School.
