Students, cheerleaders and the St. George community will come together at Pine View High School’s homecoming football game to pledge to stop texting and driving. Students will create a large “X the TXT” banner using Dixie-cups on the fence by the Pine View High School football stadium. During the game, cheerleaders will perform a special X the TXT cheer. Local Allstate agents and Pine View High School cheerleaders will also host an X the TXT booth to raise awareness of teen safe driving through thumbprint pledges from students and teen safe driving collateral such as thumb bands, X the TXT cards and more.
Since its launch, more than two million people have made the pledge and X the TXT events have taken place across the country. Upon pledging, participants receive thumb bands with the words TXTNG KLLS to wear as a daily reminder of their commitment. Pledge Cards are passed out to everyone who makes the pledge to help get a conversation started at home and encourage families to commit to safer, focused driving.
