Thirteen hundred second graders from the Sioux City School District received a bicycle helmet on Tuesday.

For the past thirteen years, Opportunities Unlimited puts on the "Gotta Brain Getta Helmet" program, where the students learn about brain injury prevention.

In years past, only a select number of students received helmets from writing essays, but this year Opportunities Unlimited was awarded a $12,500 grant from Dairy Queen.

"We have found several of the students may have a bike, a skateboard or participates in extracurricular actives. Typically a very small percentage goes up when we ask if they have a helmet. So we know we're giving them something that many of them do not have," said Opportunities Unlimited President and CEO, Jennifer McCabe.
