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.
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.
Due to COVID-19 the 2020 New Hampshire Seat Belt Challenge was cancelled. Information will be sent out to all schools before Thanksgiving in regards to a Seat Belt Challenge during the Spring of 2021.
If you have a group of teens interested in participating in the challenge email the Injury Prevention Center’s April Simonds (April.T.Simonds@hitchcock.org).
If would like more information, please contact the coordinator Chelsie Mostone at Chelsie.L.Mostone@hitchcock.org.
