On February 28 at 6:00 p.m., the grand prize winner of the Ford Driving Dreams Tour was announced LIVE at the Irving ISD Administration Building.  The winning student of the “What Drives Your Dream” contest was presented with a $5,000 scholarship and a $3,000 grant for his/her school.

Five high school students were in the running for the top prize, each selected for writing the top essay in their high school about “What Drives Your Dream.”  The winner was selected through online votes during a month long video contest which expanded the scope of the essays.

Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Dana Bedden, Joe Avila from Ford Motor Company Fund, as well as the five finalists and their principals will all be on hand for the event and available for interviews.
