Honda of Ocala To Announce Seventh Annual “Perfect Car For Perfect Attendance” Winner

The Morgan Automotive Group dealership will announce the winner on Tuesday, May 16, 2017 at its dealership located at 1800 S.W. College Road in Ocala, FL. The winning senior with perfect attendance must be present in order to accept the 2017 Honda Civic Coupe LX grand prize.


Honda of Ocala will be giving away a new 2017 Honda Civic LX Coupe to a Marion County high school senior with perfect attendance on Tuesday, May 16, 2017. The winner will be randomly selected from eligible entries at 6:00p.m.

“This giveaway has become one of the most exciting and fulfilling traditions at Honda of Ocala. Investing in our community and its future through education is a priority for us,” said Andrew Vislosky, General Manager of Honda of Ocala.

Now in its seventh year, the Perfect Car for Perfect Attendance Giveaway began in 2011 as a partnership between Honda of Ocala and Marion County Public Schools to encourage better attendance among seniors during their last year in high school.

Morgan Auto Group's Senior VP, Tom Moore spearheaded the initiative. “We feel that this program has accomplished the original mission on which it was founded. It makes us especially proud to receive hundreds of entries every year,” said Moore.

In order to be eligible, seniors must have registered for the contest between August 15 and August 26 of last year. They were also required to be enrolled and have attended a Marion Country Public High School with perfect attendance from August 29, 2016 through May 5, 2017.
