Four schools in Delaware are getting money for their proms or after-prom parties for having the most students promise to drive safely during prom season.

The nonprofit organization SmartDrive asked kids to pledge to not drink or text while driving. The school with the most signatures was Pencader Charter. St. Mark's High came in second, while Newark High School and A.I. duPont High School tied.

Program Director Karen Versuk says the prize money comes in handy.

"We've found that it was really important to a lot of our schools to get this extra money, that it pays for things like the venue, or a DJ, or food, or some other entertainment," she said.

SmartDrive is a nonprofit run by Delmarva Broadcasting Company, the parent company of WDEL. Get more information at SmartDrive USA
