State Level FACTS Awards

State level FACTS awards help one chapter in each state earn $500 and make a difference! FCCLA has partnered with Ford Driving Skills for Life and the Governors Highway Safety Association (GHSA) to award the top FACTS project in each state a $500 cash prize. Simply conduct a FACTS project during the school year and submit a program award application by March 1, 2023 for your chance to win.

  1. Free traffic safety resources and activities that you can use in your school and community can be obtained by reaching out to your state GHSA representative and visiting the resource area on the Ford Driving Skills for Life website. For even more ideas, participate in The Academy offered by Ford Driving Skills for Life.
  2. Plan and lead a FACTS project before March 1, 2023.
  3. Apply for a FACTS program award on the FCCLA portal. All FACTS applications will be personally reviewed by traffic safety experts at your state’s Office of Highway Safety. These experts will select the top project from their state and that chapter will receive a $500 FACTS state-level award. All state winners will be considered for a national award!
