The Injury Prevention Center at Dartmouth Hitchcock, in partnership with the New Hampshire Office of Highway Safety, hold’s the state’s seat belt challenge.
During 2019 the new challenge was held at Southern New Hampshire University on May 15 and was a fun, interactive event focused on seat belt use. The event included specific related teen highway safety education conducted by ThinkFast Interactive, a national touring group committed to educating teens. The winning team was Hollis Brookline High School, who recieved a large trophy with their name engraved on the side, will host the trophy until the 2020 Seat Belt Challenge.
As in past years, the primary goal of the challenge is to further educate teens about the importance of using their seat belts each and every time that they are in a motor vehicle. The new competition style allowed for a more interactive and educational experience for all attendees.
The New Hampshire Seat Belt Challenge has been rescheduled to Friday September 18th, 2020 at Hollis Brookline High School. Check in for the event begins at 9:30am with conclusion no later than 11:30am. Registration information has been sent out to New Hampshire High Schools for the 2020 Challenge.
