Default One way to get them to do well.

"MUSKEGON, Mich. (WZZM)- High School Seniors in the Muskegon School District will have extra motivation this year to make good grades. My Auto Import Center is giving one students a new 2009 Nissan Cube.

Students will increase their change of winning the car by increasing their grade point average. 4.0 students will have the best chance of calling the car their own.

The dealership hopes the free car provides the extra motivation to overachieve in the classroom.

Bill Ferry, My Auto Import Center's Sales Manager say, "We hope it will take a 2.5 student and make them an overachiever. We are going to have fun with it."

The Cube sells for $22,000. Muskegon High School and My Auto Import Center have the complete rules for the contest. The drawing will be this spring after graduating Seniors get their final grades."

I'd rather just have the value of the car to be able to spend on something else.

At least they get it after finals so they wont have to drive it around school.

Half the school wiil hate the guy for winning it, the other half will laugh at him for winning it. It's a no win situation.

That is pretty kewl. Our city council president gives his whole salary every year to that years valedictorian of the class. It is not much, but it is a nice incentive.

I'd try to win it so I could sell it real cheap compared to MSRP and then buy what I wanted.

you know some kid who has less than a 2.0 will win it even though they will have the least amount of odds. Than the students who busted their ass's will be furious and fail at college.
