JASONVILLE, Ind. (WTHI)- Jacy Collins is a Junior at Shakamak High School. Collins has always been dedicated to her classes, but now she has some extra motivation from the school.

"I talked to a lot of my friends about it and they were pretty shocked,” said Collins. “If you want to the car, you can push yourself to get the grades."

The MSD of Shakamak announced it will be raffling off a car among over forty other items. The only way these students get a chance at the items is by working hard at school.

Superintendent Dan Noel says for each day the student comes to school they will get a ticket for the raffle. Then at the end of the year, they will also get five tickets for each "A" letter grade.

Finally, the school will do a grand raffle for all the schools. The car will be for the high school students but also a savings bond for the middle school and two bicycles for the elementary.

It's a reward system for the entire school. Helping teachers get their students more involved.

"It’s just one more avenue they can use as an incentive and I think their excited about what we're doing and we're excited," said Superintend Noel.

For Collins and her friends it’s not just a chance at a shiny set of wheels, but a greater chance at a brighter future.

"I think it’s amazing that you’re getting rewarded for your grades and coming to school all the time. It’s an awesome outcome," said Collins.

The school corporation is still looking for local donations to motivate these students. If you would like to donate to their cause you can reach out to the school at its corporate number (812) 665-3550.
