A high school student in Cumberland County got the surprise of a lifetime on Thursday.

Kayla Caron, a senior at Stone Memorial High School won this year's car giveaway from Dave Kirk Automotive.

The car dealership gives away a car each year to a junior or senior student in Cumberland County with excellent attendance.

Seventeen finalists are chosen to compete at the end of the school year.

Kayla says the news that she won is still sinking in.

"It's just crazy! I can't believe it's me! I mean, you don't think stuff like this is going to happen to you. I mean even just getting drawn, I was in shock," said Kayla.

The auto dealer gave Kayla a few vehicle options to choose from, and she picked a Chevrolet Sonic LTZ.  She says she likes the car's small size and fuel efficiency.

This is the tenth year of the contest, which is aimed at encouraging students to attend class.
