CONNEAUT — A promise to drive safely could bring Conneaut High School money and possibly a concert by Grammy award-winning singer Kelly Clarkson.

The event is part of the Celebrate My Drive program, aimed at teaching teens new to driving good habits while behind the wheel. Visit to make a daily commitment.
