Sponsored by Erie Insurance and facilitated through Hamilton Insurance Agency, Join the Shift is a safe teen driving program that uses fun, interactive activities to help teens learn about and spread the safe driving message. Students participate in point-earning activities that include creating safe driving videos, taking a safe driver pledge and sharing content on social media. Students can also earn points by referring friends to sign up during the eight-week contest.

More than 4,000 students from 42 schools across 10 states participated in this annual contest.

The top three students and schools earn cash prizes. In addition, there is a $1,000 schoolwide prize for best video.

Junior Haley Andrzejewski was named the “Best Video” prize winner of the overall contest, earning herself a $1,000 prize. Her video, which is below, was selected by a panel of judges at Erie Insurance and will be featured on JoinTheShift.org for the next year as well.

Hamilton Insurance Agency, a local Insurance Agency representing Erie Insurance in Edinboro, also recognized the top three winners from General McLane, based on points. These students are Aimee Campbell, Ben Howe-Jones and Ben Lipinski. They each received  gift cards.

Georgiann “Turk” Hamilton,  Lauren Pusch and Lisa Rodgers, Erie Insurance District Sales Manager, presented the check and gift cards to General McLane students on Monday.
