Media students in Frederick receive grant

September 18, 2006

FREDERICK, Md. - Television and multimedia students at the Frederick County Career and Technology Center recently received a $2,000 grant from State Farm for their proposal for Project Ignition.

Project Ignition is sponsored by State Farm and coordinated by the National Youth Leadership Council to address the issue of teen driver safety. The class submitted a proposal at the end of last year to develop an anti-drinking and driving campaign for students.

The television and multimedia class' proposal was one of 24 selected from across the nation for a grant. The students will submit their completed project in December.

The top 10 schools will receive an additional $5,000 to cover expenses associated with traveling to the national conference in Albuquerque, N.M. An overall winner will be selected, and a $10,000 prize will be awarded.
