The teams participating in TRACTION Training Conferences can consist of up to 12 students (freshman, sophomore and junior) and 2 adult advisors.  To better implement team action plans, it is suggested that teams be diverse and made up of an equal number of male and female students, when possible. We request that the adult advisors and student team members commit to working as a team throughout the upcoming school year.  This is crucial to the success of the program!

Each team will be required to pay a registration fee of $15.00 per person which will be utilized for conference support. All other costs (meals, lodging, speakers, etc.) will be covered by the Missouri Department of Transportation, Highway Safety Division.

For more information on obtaining registration fee funding through your regions coalition, please contact Kacey Wilson at 573-751-5413 or
