In an effort to make our roads safer, Metzger Wickersham – the Pennsylvania personal injury law firm you know and trust – has pledged our support to help spread the message that distracted drivers and drunk drivers are not only a danger to themselves but also everyone else on the road. We are hosting our 9th annual “Road to Safety Scholarship Contest,” which encourages high school seniors to enter a creative project that sends a memorable message to their peers about the dangers of drunk driving and/or distracted driving. The contest is open to any Pennsylvania high school senior who will be attending college after graduation.
There are three levels of prizes to win through the scholarship contest:
- First place: $1,000
- Second place: $750
- Third place: $500
To encourage as many people to enter this contest as possible, we will award multiple scholarships to seniors in each of these categories. Entries are being accepted through Friday, April 16, 2021.
HOW DO I ENTER THE ROAD TO SAFETY SCHOLARSHIP CONTEST?
To qualify for the Road to Safety Scholarship Contest, applying seniors must make a poster, painting, drawing, digital illustration, video, audio PSA, song, dance, or another creative project that focuses on the dangers of reckless, distracted, or drunk driving. Scholarship winners will be chosen based on their project’s creativity and effectiveness in promoting safe driving.
