On Monday February 22, 2010, students from the High School for Recording Arts received a $100,000 Youth Advisory Board grant from State Farm Insurance. The students worked over the summer to write the grant and their hard work paid off. The students will use the grant money to work with Gillette Children's Hospital, KS95 94.5FM and 963 Now 96.3FM on a campaign called “Ready For The Road”. The Campaign will be about eliminating driving distractions through awareness and new legislation. Congratulations to all the students at HSRA for their outstanding work and accomplishments.
