Brenna McPhee and her dad, Richard McPhee, check out the 2012 Scion XD she won from Toyota of Tampa Bay last year.

100% attendance can net new car

More than 200 Hillsborough County high school seniors who maintained perfect attendance during the second semester of the 2012-2013 school year, will try to win an all-expenses paid Scion xD Saturday and become the third winner of the annual promotion by Toyota of Tampa Bay. The event begins at 10 a.m. and food will be provided for those in attendance. Parents will also have the opportunity to register to win a MacBook Air. Prizes will be announced starting at 1 p.m.

School Board members Cindy Stuart and Candy Olson will pull the names of eligible students and each will pull a key from a bowl and try to open the car. The student with the correct key will win the car and Toyota of Tampa Bay will cover the registration and tax costs associated with the car. Last year, Armwood High senior Brenna McPhee won a Scion. The partnership between Toyota of Tampa Bay and Hillsborough County Public Schools encourages high school students to show dedication by having perfect attendance in their final year.

"We think it's very important to encourage school attendance," said general manager John Gliem. "Dedication and hard work really do pay off."
