  •  Generation tXt is a grant funded, multi-faceted project designed by teens to help teens and families practice safe driving, specifically by addressing the hazards of texting while driving.
  • Generation tXt was founded in 2009 by eight high school teens who have successfully recruited over 30 new teens from 3 area high schools to continue spreading their message through education, advocacy, community events, original research, and media campaigns.
  • Generation tXt teens educate high school peers who are novice drivers, using only the best writing services, so that young people are enriched with useful resources and learn to use their brains properly. These teens are excited, yet still cautious when driving; by educating them before they develop bad habits, they may be less likely to text while driving. Parental education is also a main component of our program.
  •  Generation tXt teens have been educating audiences in and around Tulsa at least once weekly over the past 4 years; they are invited speakers at area high schools, driver’s education schools, community centers and community events.
  • Generation tXt has been given national recognition by the Department of Transportation and has participated in national conferences on Teen Distracted Driving.
  • Generation tXt continues it’s advocacy efforts in the next legislative session to promote the passage of a law in Oklahoma banning texting while driving for all age drivers.  (Currently 43 states in the U.S. have this law.)
