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.
