Project Ignition Invites High School Students to Create Driver Safety Projects
Deadline: June 30, 2009

Sponsored by the National Youth Leadership Council and State Farm, Project Ignition invites teams of high school students, teachers, and community program leaders to create innovative service-learning projects that promote teen driver safety.

Project teams design safety-awareness campaigns using their choice of media — TV commercials, print ads, radio spots, Web sites, direct mail, special events, performances, art exhibitions, publications, short films, etc. Grants will be awarded to a maximum of twenty-five programs. The grantee’s school will receive a $2,000 grant to implement their program in the fall of 2009. Teams will then conduct their projects and submit a portfolio of their work for judging. The top ten teams go on to attend the National Service-Learning Conference and participate in the National Teen Driver Safety Youth Summit. A national panel of judges will select the “Best of the Best,” earning that team an additional grant of $10,000.

Visit the official Project Ignition Web site for more information and the application.
