Help Stop Teen Texting & Driving, Win a $5,000 Scholarship

By: Jon Corrigan

According to a study done by the Cohen Children’s Medical Center, texting and driving is the top killer of teens.

Michigan Auto Law wants to help change that.

The Farmington Hills-based law firm is sponsoring a new public safety campaign, “The 2016 Kelsey’s Law Scholarship: Stop Distracted Driving Contest.”

The scholarship contest is in honor of Kelsey Raffaele of Sault Ste. Marie, whose tragic death inspired Michigan’s teen driving law after she was killed in a 2010 car accident using her cell phone.

In October 2016, at least $5,000 worth of scholarships will be awarded to four Michigan high school students.

Applicants have one mission: To submit a persuasive safety message convincing young drivers to reduce distractions while driving. The safety message can be via video, Tweet or graphic.

The contest is open to high school seniors and juniors in the class of 2016 attending any public or private Michigan high school. The deadline to submit entries is August 31, 2016.
