Home ► TorHoerman Law Scholarship – End Distracted Driving Essay Contest
As part of the TorHoerman Law Scholarship Program, THL is hosting our second annual scholarship essay competition. In accordance with our “End Distracted Driving” campaign, student contestants will be asked to discuss the dangers of distracted driving and what steps our society can take to put an end to this issue. The student with the best overall response will receive $1,000 to go towards their education costs.
Contestants can choose to submit either a written essay OR a video response to our essay topic prompt.
Contestants must provide PDF proof of Fall 2019 enrollment at an accredited university. This may include an acceptance letter, a class schedule, or another enrollment document. Documents must be dated and include the student’s name and university. The scholarship will be sent directly to the Bursar Department at the student’s university.
Students are limited to one submission each.
Society preaches “don’t drink and drive”, “hand over your keys if you have been drinking”, and “always have a sober driver”. The result? If a friend were under the influence you wouldn’t hesitate to offer to drive him or her home. Texting while driving is comparable to drinking four beers and then driving. If while driving, your friend is texting, scrolling social media, browsing hi or her playlist, etc. what would you do, and why? Even though texting while driving can be just as dangerous as drinking while driving, why do we as a society accept it? What can we do to change this acceptance?
Videos should be an approximately 3-5 minutes long response to the “essay topic”. Use original materials only. Do not use any copyrighted materials in your video unless you have permission to do so.
Videos should be uploaded to YouTube. After they are uploaded, copy the link to the video on the submission form.
