Transurban-Fluor has named George C. Marshall High School the winner of the Orange Cones. No Phones. High School Safety Challenge, a marketing competition among Fairfax County Public High Schools, targeting the DECA/Marketing or Career Academy Programs.

To combat distracted driving among young, inexperienced drivers, Transurban-Fluor and AAA-Mid-Atlantic launched the challenge. Students were asked to develop a communications program that will reduce the number of Fairfax County High School students that drive distracted in construction zones. The winning team will receive $5,000 from Transurban-Fluor to implement their program between January and April 2011.

On Thursday, Dec. 9, students from Falls Church High School, James Madison High School, and George C. Marshall High School presented their ideas on how to reduce distracted driving among their peers to a panel of judges.

Judges chose the team from George C. Marshall High School as the winner.
