The Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson may end up visiting either Chief Sealth International HIgh School or West Seattle High School (Roosevelt and Franklin might win too) as a reward for winning a contest sponsored by Verizon Wireless. The contest, Save It Seattle began November 12, and and ends Dec. 19.

Students from eligible Seattle Public Schools are required to complete an entry form (and consent form) and submit it via FAX that pledges they will not text and drive. Only one pledge per email address.

The school with the highest number of pledges will win.

The official rules then say: "The winning school will be awarded the Grand Prize of a two hour meet and greet opportunity with Seattle Seahawks player Russell Wilson, to be held at the winning high school on or about January 8, 2013, depending on player and school availability."

The website includes an extra note that might enhance a school's chance of winning, "even if your friends and family within the community don’t attend high school, they can still take the pledge on behalf of one of the schools to help increase the chances of winning."
