As part of the Ford Driving Dreams Tour that launched at Irving ISD last fall, Ford Motor Company Fund will be visiting the five high school campuses to deliver prizes to the students that placed in the “What Drives Your Dream?” essay contest. The prizes include the latest tech-gadgets such as Apple MacBook Pros, video cameras, iPads and gift certificates, which can serve as valuable educational tools.

Fifteen students were selected out of 9,300 for their essays on what drives their dream from schools: Irving High SchoolNimitz High SchoolJack E. Singley Academy, and Cardwell Career Preparatory Center.

The Ford Driving Dreams Tour is a year-long, district-wide initiative with scholarships, a contest, after-school programs and more all to promote on-time high school graduation and college enrollment.  The grand prize winner of the online video contest will be announced at a special ceremony on February 28. Media will have the opportunity to photograph students being awarded their prizes and conduct interviews.
