Congratulations to the 2016 winners!
Each day, over 200 people are injured and 4 people are killed in traffic accidents in Pennsylvania. At Metzger Wickersham law firm, we have represented thousands of people injured in auto accidents, and we know how a serious or fatal car crash can devastate a victim’s family, friends and the surrounding community.
Many motor vehicle crashes are caused by risky behaviors like driving under the influence of alcohol or texting while driving. These types of accidents are especially heartbreaking, because they are fully preventable.
Metzger Wickersham’s scholarship program encourages students to take a stand against dangerous driving. The Road to Safety Scholarship Contest (formerly known as the Arrive Alive Contest) provides high school seniors with the opportunity to submit a creative project about the dangers of drunk driving and/or distracted driving for the chance to win college scholarship money. The ultimate goal of the contest is to help spread the word to drive with safety in mind all the time!
First place winners will receive a $1,000 scholarship, second place winners will receive $750 and third place winners will receive $500. All other entrants will receive a fun prize for their participation. The entry period for the 2016 Road to Safety Scholarship Contest is closed. Information regarding the 2017 contest will be posted in the coming months. (Last updated: July 2016).
