Schools throughout Northeast Texas will be competing in Jefferson for Project Graduation Funds from the Texas Department of Transportation. Students from each of the schools have produced videos promoting traffic safety issues for their peers. Such subjects include district driving, seat belt usage, drinking and driving, speeding, etc.
The school with the winning video will receive a $1500 grant for their Project Graduation event for this year. Second place will receive $1250, third place $1000 and every other school participating will receive $700. Schools not participating in the video competition may also receive grant funds by sponsoring traffic safety events at their school.
