Here's How The Program Works
The Keys to Success program is administered through each participating high school. Students have the chance to qualify for a "Key Card" that entitles them to incentive awards from several sponsors. The local high school administration is responsible for the exact qualifications, which may include improvement in any of the following areas:
- Class Attendance
- Other areas identified by teachers
A Key Card is actually a gift certificate of sorts. The recipient of a Key Card can access the Ken Garff Keys to Success website and choose from a myriad of tickets or vouchers for participation in any number of events. Teachers, Administration, and Counselors can nominate recipients throughout the school year.
The best part of the program happens at the end of the school year. This is where the Free Car comes in! During the last two months of school, the school administration, teachers, and counselors may assemble and select 50 students from the pool of Key Card recipients at that school. These selected students will then randomly compete for a chance to win a car (valued at $5,000 to $7,000) at a Keys to Success year-end assembly.
