Newton Nissan South’s 4th Annual Car Giveaway!

Car Giveaway

Did you know? Newton Nissan South hosts a car giveaway every year?

Well, it’s TRUE.

One lucky Middle TN high school student will drive away with a Nissan Versa this summer! For the fourth year in a row, we’ll be giving away a brand-new car for absolutely FREE. You read that right–no taxes or hidden fees. FREE! Why? Because we want to give back to our community, and one of the ways we can do that is by rewarding our hard-working students with a car giveaway!

So, how does it work?

  1. Sign up here.
  2. Drop off your report card at our Shelbyville location by June 10th. We’ll also need a copy of your (or your parent’s) driver’s license.
  3. Come to the big event on June 14th, at 6 PM!

How many entries can I have?

Students will receive an entry for every “A” on their report card! The more A’s, the more entries into drawing! Believe us…the odds will be in your favor! It is worth entering! On the night of the drawing, we will have food and drinks for everyone. We look forward to seeing you at the car giveaway!

Here are a few FAQs:

Question: I’m taking a class that only gives me a pass/fail grade, will a “P” for “Pass” count as an entry?

No. Only grades that are considered an “A” on the report card will be eligible.

Question: I am taking a college class during high school, will that class be eligible for an entry if I get an “A” in it?

That’s tricky. An “A” from a college/AP class will count only if the class is listed on the high school’s report card (not on a college report card).

Question: I am a college student. Can I enter the car giveaway?

No. The giveaway is currently only open to high school students in a Tennessee high school.

Question: Can I use my Driver’s Permit to enter the car giveaway?

Yes. You can now use your driver’s permit, driver’s license, or student ID to enter, as long as your parent or legal guardian has a valid driver’s license.

Question: My school does not give out report cards. Can I print off my grades from the school’s online portal?

We cannot accept copies or print offs of report cards, unless they are verifed. To verify your grades, go to the Welcome Desk at Newton Nissan South and ask our teammates to log in to your school’s portal (you will need to provide your login). From there, we can verify and print your grades!

Question: I totally forgot to bring in my report card and now the deadline has passed. Can you make an exception for me?

No. We are unable to make exceptions.

Question: My child brought in her grades but she won’t be able to make the car giveaway. Can I stand-in for her?

No. Students must be present to win.

We can’t wait to see you!

Don’t forget: the deadline for report cards is June 10th!

Good luck!

3rd Annual Student Car Giveaway

 

Newton Nissan Car Giveaway

Good Grades = Free Car

Ashley, a 10th grader from Community High School in Shelbyville, won a brand new car this weekend because of her good grades. Ashley was so shocked, saying, “I just can’t believe it…I mean, ME?!” She will be getting her permit soon, and is excited to begin driving her new car! Her little sister and mom were also surprised and thankful for this gift to their family. The annual Newton Nissan Car Giveaway event is open to all students enrolled in a Tennessee high school. Since the program started in 2009, Newton Nissan has given away ten cars to students in the Nashville area.

About the Grand Prize

The grand prize was a 2018 Nissan Versa, valued at $15,330. “Newton Nissan pays for both the car and sales taxes, so Ashley doesn’t have to pay anything for her new car,” says Mike Abbondanza, Newton Nissan’s Vice President. Students enter the contest by bringing in their report card from the most recent school year. Students increase their chances of winning by making good grades, since they receive one entry per “A” on their report card.

Other Fun Happenings This Year

But there were more prizes to be had! We had several trivia rounds for other students to win smaller prizes like gift cards and very large candy bars!

Add that to free food and a drawing for a free oil change for the parents — it was a fun night for all! We love celebrating all these students, who have worked so hard all year long, and we especially love giving back to our community in this way. If you weren’t able to join us this year, we hope that you will next year for the Newton Nissan Car Giveaway!

Congratulations again to Ashley!
