SHILLINGTON, Pa. -

Students and staffers in the Governor Mifflin School District got quite a surprise Wednesday.

They thought they gathered at the football stadium for an assembly, but instead, the district got $25,000 from State Farm Insurance.

The district won the money by getting a lot students to sign safe driving pledges during the "Celebrate My Drive" campaign last month.

More than 3,500 schools took part in the contest. Only six in Pennsylvania won cash.
