Hey students and teachers!

Car crashes are the #1 killer of our youth. We want YOU to get involved in helping to resolve this issue by creating a service-learning, public awareness campaign on teen driver safety. How?

Project Ignition, a joint project presented by State Farm and NYLC, invites students grades 9-12 and teachers or project coordinators, to create a great new project on teen driver safety. 25 school projects will be selected to receive a $2000 grant to complete their project in the fall 2004-2005 school year.

If you receive one of the 25 $2000 grants to be given to schools across the nation, you’ll have time to complete your project and submit it to a national judging panel – this time for up to $5000 to travel to Long Beach, CA for the 2005 National Service Learning Conference. There, you’ll present your project before a national audience and celebrity judges, and one school will receive a grant of $10,000 for best in show.

It’s a great opportunity, and just a click away. Visit <a href=""></a>, read the rules, download the application and mail to us by April 15, 2004.

Don’t delay!
