Oa-bcig Wins $25,000 Grant from "Celebrate My drive"

After several teenage driving fatalities in the area last year, one Siouxland school rallied to help their community drive a little safer. Students at OA-BCIG High School in Ida Grove, Iowa, got a big reward for their months of work to the tune of $25,000. "It was good to kind of get a group of kids together and show some leadership. They all tagged in too, so it was good to work together as a group," Cash Wilcke, OA-BCIG Senior said.

The school received a $25,000 grant check for participation in the State Farm Celebrate My Drive Program. OA-BCIG collected about 30,000 pledges from community members to focus on safer driving when behind the wheel, outperforming more than 3,000 schools across the country. "The whole purpose of it is so that teens drive safely, and that's been a big issue here in this area. 

As far as the grant money, some will go to the school's driver's ed program. Miller says another portion will go to the fine arts program. "It's wonderful. It's going to allow us to do some things that we wouldn't otherwise be able to do, and it's a great tribute to what the kids did," Miller said.

school song  

(Verse)
Let's stand and cheer, we'll show no fear. Our power and might is ever near.
Our Falcon pride, we will not hide as we bring victory to our side.
We'll do our best to stand the test. Until we win we'll never rest.

Come on all you Falcons, Fight! Fight! Fight! With all your might. (2nd time only: Go OA-BCIG)

Yell for the purple, yell for the silver, yell for the mighty black.
Our team is ready, ready to attack.
Cheer for the Falcons!
Cheer for the Falcons!
Falcons! Fight! Fight! Fight!
