On Monday, Oct. 15, the Oakcrest High School media and health programs both received a $750 grant from UGotBrains in partnership with the Brain Injury Alliance of NJ, in recognition of their ongoing efforts to make their school and community a safer place for drivers of all ages.

The students in health and media classes at Oakcrest recently collaborated to produce projects that raise awareness of distracted driving, such as digital posters, video public service announcements and graphic designs.

This is the fifth year that project advisers and Oakcrest teachers Kevin Costello (health) and Jason Thomas (media) have worked together to guide students and staff through the year-long campaign, which includes various projects, guest speakers and driver education events.
