Ohio Hi-Point Career Center Awarded $2,000 for student led teen driver safety campaign.
Newark Ohio, January 27, 2012 - Ohio Hi-Point Career Center has been selected as one of 25 schools across the U.S. and Canada to receive a $2,000 Project Ignition grant for 2012.
Project Ignition, now in its 8th year, is a student-led teen driver safety program funded by State Farm® and coordinated by the National Youth Leadership Council. It was developed because car crashes are the No. 1 killer of youth. With a little help from Project Ignition, students at Ohio Hi-Point Career Center are working to change that devastating reality.
Please join us in congratulating Ohio Hi-Point Career Center. We look forward to seeing how they will make a difference in their community. If their campaign is chosen at the end of the school year as one of the top 10, they are eligible to receive additional funding (up to $7,500) to extend their campaign and to participate in a national event where they will showcase their leadership in teen driver safety.
“As the nation’s No. 1 insurer of vehicles, State Farm makes it a priority to promote teen driver safety through programs like Project Ignition,” says State Farm Spokeswoman Angie Rinock. “We believe in the power of young people to make a difference and are happy to join them in promoting teen driver safety.”
