A recent grant award is helping provide all-terrain vehicle safety training to Mississippi 4-H’ers. The Mississippi State University Extension Service 4-H ATV Safety Program recently received $10,000 from Polaris through the company’s T.R.A.I.L.S. grant program. The funds purchased two youth sized Polaris ATVs and safety equipment. T.R.A.I.L.S. is an acronym for trail development, responsible riding, access, initiatives, lobbying and safety.

Safety gear for ATV riding includes helmets, gloves, long pants and long sleeves. Young people should ride ATVs designed for their size rather than full-size ATVs designed for adult riders. (Photo by MSU Extension Service/Bonnie Coblentz)
