ADA, Okla. -- Several students from Ada High School participated in this year’s Project Ignition.

'Project Ignition' is a service-learning grant program focused on teen driver safety. This year, Ada students placed in the top 25 in the nation for their project, “Informing Today, Ensuring Tomorrow.”

The project brought about a significant increase in seat-belt usage and driving at safe speeds throughout the state of Oklahoma. Their message about safer driving is being used by members of the House of Representatives. They say it’s a good way to give back to their fellow teen drivers.

"We have about 90 schools in Oklahoma that have joined, and we are expanding," said Markie Martin, a student at AHS.

"I believe it is something that, you know, every teenager needs to be aware of," says student, Jenni Bolin.

The group of students also attended the National Teen Safe Driving Summit in Washington, D.C.

    To Republican in Ardmore, you should take the time to look at the website that these AWESOME students have created and you would see all that they are telling not just their peers, but anyone that is willing to take the time to listen to their msg. The last girl in the report lost her brother in an accident and has now become an avid supporter of this cause. Not to mention the support and hard work that the Teacher for this class has given, all of the students at Ada High and the community as well. Please stop to look at all the cards before you play your hand.
