TEXTING AND DRIVING SCHOLARSHIP
Deadline: April 12, 2019


     Texting and driving poses a serious safety hazard for young drivers in across the United States. To spread the message about the dangers of texting and driving, Morris, King & Hodge, P.C. is sponsoring the 3rd Annual Driver Safety Scholarship program. Our law firm will award three scholarships to 2019 graduating seniors and/or rising freshmen in Alabama colleges and universities who create an original essay explaining the dangers of texting and driving and practical steps to ending this momentous problem.

     Sending text messages takes drivers’ eyes off the road, their hands off the wheel and their mind off the task of driving and remaining alert for oncoming traffic. What can we do as a community to convey to young drivers that texting and driving leads to serious and avoidable accidents? We’re confident our young people have some good ideas.

     To enter the program, you’ll need to submit an essay with at least 1000 words. We’re seeking clever, well-researched ideas that offer a fresh take on the dangers of texting and driving. The tone can be light-hearted or serious, as long as it’s informative, helpful and original.



     As a law firm active in Huntsville, Alabama, Morris, King & Hodge, P.C. is dedicated to making our state a safer place to live and raise families. We recognize our young people are our communities’ most precious resource. We are committed to helping students across the country receive a college education to pursue their career goals.
We wish you the best of luck and look forward to receiving your scholarship program entries.

Essay Topic

Please answer the following question in your essay:
“How can we educate our community about the dangers of distracted driving and what are some practical ways we can drastically reduce distracted driving related accidents?

Helpful Ideas

  • Interview someone who was involved in a distracted driving accident.
  • Are there any technological solutions to this problem that haven’t been explored?
