Metzger Wickersham Awards 6 Student Winners in 2015 Road to Safety Scholarship Contest
HARRISBURG, Pa – Metzger Wickersham law firm announces the winners of its 3rd annual student scholarship contest. The Road to Safety Scholarship Contest (formerly known as the Arrive Alive Contest) encourages graduating, college-bound high school seniors to enter a creative project about the dangers of drunk driving and/or distracted driving. Metzger Wickersham’s goal in hosting the contest is to spread awareness about the safety issues facing teens on the road today.
“As personal injury lawyers, we feel it is our civic duty to promote awareness about the consequences of risky driving behaviors,” said Metzger Wickersham attorney Zach Campbell. “The Road to Safety Scholarship is a way for us to give back to the community and get teenagers involved in spreading the word about important issues like distracted driving and driving while intoxicated.”
Students were asked to come up with a memorable, innovative and effective way to motivate drivers to be more safety-conscious behind the wheel. High school seniors throughout Pennsylvania submitted a variety of original entries, such as videos, poems, songs and posters, for their chance to win college scholarship money.
“We were highly impressed with the effort put forth by the students,” Campbell commented. “Distracted and drunk driving tragedies are fully preventable, and these students should be proud that they are helping to drive that message home.”
The following students were chosen as winners in Metzger Wickersham’s 2015 Road to Safety Scholarship Contest:
