COLORADO SPRINGS — Drive Smart's annual High School Traffic Safety Challenge got a boost Tuesday.

State Farm donated $25,000 to students for the cause.

The seven week program includes good driving presentations, phone checks, safety checks, and time in distracted driving simulators.

"It was kind of weird, but I think it did give me a real good example of what goes on when people actually do not drive smart," said Ramsey Whitaker, a student at Sierra High School.

28 schools are expected to take part in the program.

Awards will be given to the school that foster the best overall traffic safety program.
