A new program aimed at keeping kids safe on the roads, is kicking off here in the Quad Cities Area.
Riverdale schools have received a $2,000 grant for the Operation Teen Safe Driving Program. It will be used to create and implement a program where teens will reach out to younger students and mentor them about the importance of safety and responsibility.
Also, kids grades K-5 will participate in a contest where they will be asked to color pictures of the Operation Teen Safe Driving Program logo. The winners will be announced and awards given to one student from each grade by Sheriff Boyd and Rep. Mike Smiddy.
A press conference for this grant award will be held Feb. 11 at 8:30 a.m. at the Riverdale Elementary School in Port Byron.
