(WIS) - A cause in Columbia needs your help to turn an idea into action.

State Farm Neighborhood Assist is giving $25,000 grants to 40 community causes in the U.S. 

In Columbia, the South Carolina National Safety Council's Driver Academy wants to help at-risk teens get free driving education.

The DMV requires all teens under 17 years old to get Driver's Education, but that costs $325 on average. The grant would give more 100 students free drivers training.

Two other SC organizations, Lowcountry Leadership - Save Our Preschool in Hollywood and Reading Partners South Carolina, are also competing for the grant. 

All you have to do to help them is vote for that cause. Voting ends Friday just before midnight.
