Project Ignition Grants Available

DATE September 21, 2011LEAVE A COMMENT

The National Youth Leadership Council® and State Farm® are pleased to announce the availability of $2,000 Project Ignition grants for public high schools to support their students in addressing teen driver safety through service-learning.

Car crashes remain the number one cause of death for adolescents. That’s a staggering statistic that young people, in partnership with their teachers and community, are working to change through Project Ignition.

Students get the facts out, engage their audiences and work to ultimately influence driving behaviors and save lives on the road. Educators who work with Project Ignition describe it as the most effective program they’ve used to help teens become better, safer drivers.
• Twenty-five schools will be chosen to receive $2,000 grants.
• Ten of these schools will be selected to receive an additional $5,000 to support their participation in a significant national conference or event.
• These ten schools will also be given the opportunity to receive an additional $2,500 to go deeper with their campaigns.
Applications are available now and due Nov. 15, 2011. Visit for the application and tools to create a high-quality proposal.
