Texting and Driving Prevention Scholarship

Scholarship Sponsored by Emerson Straw Injury Law

Value: $1,000
Awards Available: 1
Deadline: Sep 30, 2021

At Emerson Straw PL, we have seen firsthand the devastating impacts of distracted driving. Technological innovations such as smartphones have led to breakthroughs in both science and exploration, but these advancements have also caused an increase in distracted driving accidents.

As personal injury attorneys, we work with individuals who have suffered the physical and emotional effects of auto accidents involving texting and driving. Millions of innocent people are severely injured or die each year in these collisions. This is unacceptable, and we believe that this tragic problem can be curbed if individuals make a commitment to practicing safe driving etiquette and encouraging their friends and family to do the same.

Our law firm is pleased to announce our 2021 Texting and Driving Prevention Scholarship. This is a $1,000 scholarship opportunity that is intended to spur creative solutions to the distracted driving epidemic that is affecting the entire country.

To enter, please write a 750-word essay that explores the ways that you can prevent yourself and other people from texting behind the wheel. Besides discussing your personal relationship with this issue, we want you to outline solutions and prevention tips to improve the safety of everyone on the road.
