Missouri Chapter one of the 50 Best!

Congratulations to Trenton High School FCCLA Chapter- they have been named one of the 50 Best National Youth Traffic Safety Month projects! This contest was sponsored by Allstate and the National Organizations for Youth Traffic Safety (NOYS). Their project was entitled "Project Prom 2009."

The following is the description of their project, which can be found at the NOYS website.

"Arrive Alive” was painted on the high school parking lot as you enter and exit the school. Seat belt checks were held as the students entered the school to remind them to wear seat belts. Fortune cookies were handed out the week of prom with all school lunches 5th - 12th grade and served at prom. Each fortune cookie had “arrive alive” fortunes. All juniors and seniors signed a banner to pledge to wear their seat belt. The banner was hung in the commons during prom for all parents and students to view. Each senior was given an “arrive alive” t-shirt in school colors to wear on Friday before prom. Students who wore their seat belt on Friday before prom received “arrive alive” promotion items from the Missouri Department of Transportation. We also partnered with the Grundy County Health Department, who provided funding for the fortune cookies. We had Sheldon Lyon, a local Missouri state patrolman, come to the school and do an assembly of seat belt safety. Also, one of our senior students who survived a car crash wearing a seat belt spoke during the assembly. Prom was April 25th, 2009. No traffic accidents occurred. This project reached over 400 students. In May we announced the results of the seat belt checks on our student bulletin and we continued to hang our signed banner in our high school commons to remind students of the commitment they made. We reported our results to the County Health Department and Missouri Department of transportation.
