Students participate in Savannah Exchange Club's Quick-Think-A-Thon

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Quick thinking second graders put their safety knowledge to the test at the 26th Annual Savannah-Chatham Public Schools' Quick-Think-A-Thon, sponsored by the Exchange Club of Savannah.

Seven Chatham County public schools were represented at the event held at Jenkins High School. As their classmates cheered them on, the kids answered questions about what to do with stranger danger, fires, and dealing with dares.

"We ask them questions, 'what do you do if you smell smoke,' someone asks you to get in their car or if your mom is home.' We hope they gt those skills naturally, but this is a fun way to do it," said Toby Browne, Savannah Exchange Club.

Wednesday's overall winner was Camya Smith from Juliette Gordon Low Elementary School. Rebecca Riley from J.G. Smith Elementary was the runner-up, and Ashlyn McKenzie from Hesse was the other runner-up.

WTOC's Mike Cihla was the Master of Ceremonies for the event.
