Grant Funding Available for Project Prom or Graduation

SIKESTON - The Southeast Coalition for Roadway Safety is offering grant funding to Southeast Missouri high schools that host student lock-in events for Project Prom or graduation. Selected schools will receive $200 to assist with expenses for location rental, food, entertainment and door prizes.

"Supervised events, such as lock-ins, provide a safe environment for students to celebrate," said SE Regional Coalition Coordinator Craig Compas. "We want students to have good memories of these nights-unmarred by a drinking and driving accident." 

The Southeast Coalition will accept applications from schools within the southeast region until March 7, with notification of awards on March 14. Interested schools and/or their sponsors can obtain Community Outreach Grant applications online at www.savemolives.com/southeast/resources.html or by contacting Southeast Coalition Regional Contact Sandra Taurone at (573) 472-5388 or sandra.taurone@modot.mo.gov. Applications must contain action plans for the school's lock-in, including an educational activity or presentation promoting safe driving practices in their night's agenda. Additional consideration will be given to regional schools that have participated in other coalition events and programs throughout the year. 

The Missouri Coalition for Roadway Safety, a diverse group representing engineering, enforcement, education, and emergency medical services, was created in 2004 to reduce traffic fatalities and disabling injuries on Missouri's roads.
