Two minutes of a South Dakota teenage driver's time could lead to a big payday.

The South Dakota Office of Highway Safety and the South Dakota Broadcasters Association are sponsoring Lesson Learned's 'You've Got Something to Win', a campaign being held in conjunction with Distracted Driving Awareness Month.

As part of the campaign, South Dakota high school students may now enter this year’s teen safe driving campaign, where they can win $10,000 for themselves and another $10,000 for a school-sponsored activity or program of their choice.

Lesson Learned is in its ninth year and is appropriately timed with this spring’s driver education classes. It is sponsored by the South Dakota Office of Highway Safety and the South Dakota Broadcasters Association, which provides the prize money.

The entry period runs through April 30. To participate, students must be between 14 and 19 years of age and complete a three-question safe driving quiz.

Last year’s $10,000 winner was Robbie Sealey, a freshman at O’Gorman High School.  His school also received a $10,000 award.

He won out of a record-breaking 4,427 entries.

LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.

Read on to explore the cost of gas over time and rediscover just how much a gallon was when you first started driving.
