A high school freshman from Texas, Kenzie Deaton, is the proud owner of a brand new 2011 Chevrolet Camaro, which she won as part of a competition being run by her school in an effort to get students to improve their grades.

The only problem is that Deaton is just 14 years of age so can’t even drive yet. Her parents, however, are quite happy to look after the car until she is old enough to start learning.

Her school, Northwest High School, along with other schools in Northwest Texas, has been motivating students to attend classes and improve their grades with an annual car giveaway. This year the prize was the  popular muscle car, which was delivered by Moritz Chevrolet on behalf of the Northwest ISD Partners in Education program.

During the year, students would earn tickets based on their grades and attendance. The better their grades and attendance, the more tickets they would receive and thus the higher their chances of being picked as the winner of the new Camaro.

There were also 24 runners-up who each received a Dell Streak 7 Touch Screen Tablet.

Interestingly, this wasn’t the only 2011 Chevrolet Camaro given away to a high school student recently. This same month Broken Arrow High School student Andy Boggs won a Camaro after his name was drawn from thousands of student entrants statewide who purchased items from the Jostens school memorabilia supplier. 

All we can say is that we wish they gave away cars when we went to school.
