Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) -- Fargo's Miss North Dakota Teen International Olivia Naylor is hoping to raise awareness about the dangers of teen driving, all while raising money for her next competition.

Naylor's cousin was in a fatal accident at the age of 13. The family blames the accident on inexperience behind the wheel , but out of the tragic situation the family helped get the Graduated Drivers License law in place.

Plane rides are being given for 20 dollars per person at Vicks to help Naylor pay her way to the National Pageant, but also to help her spread her message and educate young drivers.

Naylor says, "the biggest message i try to get across is to teen is that a lot of times we think that we are invincible, you know we're so excited to get our drivers license right away, but the key here is, is that it's a step, it's a plan, to get us ready to be on the road, you know right away we aren't always ready."

Plane rides will be given tomorrow from 9 in the morning until 9 at night.
