Students at Dexter High School have the opportunity to participate in the Strive for a Safer Drive (S4SD) program, aimed at reducing teen traffic accidents.

A total of 36 Michigan high schools will participate this year. As part of S4SD, each school will receive $1,000 to be used toward a student-led campaign to educate the community on traffic safety, speeding, seat belts, and other aspects of distracted driving.

Campaigns are submitted to the Michigan Office of Highway Safety Planning for a chance to win cash prizes ranging from $500 to $1,500.

In its 12th year, S4SD is a public-private partnership between Ford Motor Company Fund’s Drive Skills for Life program and the Michigan OHSP.
