AT&T is teaming up with the Buffalo Sabres to offer Western New York high school students the chance to win the Sabres experience of a lifetime - and save lives, too.

Sabres captain Steve Ott is personally asking high school students to take the pledge to never text and drive again in their lifetime. The high school with the most pledges will have Ott visit the school to discuss the dangers of texting and driving with the students. That school's hockey team will hold a practice at First Niagara Center in Buffalo with Ott.

The pledge drive is underway now through Jan. 31, 2014. The school with the most pledges will be selected in February.

To enter, all students will need to take the pledge via www.whyipledge.com/buffalo and get as many of their friends, family members and neighbors to take the pledge on behalf of their school. Students can go back and take the pledge once a day through the course of the promotion.
