Nominations sought for Parent/Teen Activist of Year Award

The AllState Foundation wants to recognize two people each year ó one teen and one parent ó who go above and beyond to address the issue of teen driving and advocate for change in teen driving statistics, according to agent Robert Cockerl.
The winners will receive the Parent/Teen Activist of the Year Awards, worth thousands of dollars.
Car crashes are the No. 1 killer of teens in America, claiming nearly 6,000 teen lives each year, Cockerl says. Since 2005, the AllState Foundation has been focused on reducing these statistics.
The foundation is accepting nominations now and will announce the winners in May, which is National Youth Traffic Safety Month.
The Parent Activist of the Year will select a teen driving-related nonprofit organization to receive a $10,000 grant.
The Teen Activist of the Year will win a $10,000 cash prize and a $5,000 grant to be given to a teen driving-related nonprofit of their choice.
Anyone can nominate a parent or teen, and teens and parents may nominate themselves by visiting www.TeenDrivingActivist.com. Complete rules and eligibility requirements for awards also are available on the site.
