Due August 31st, 2019 - Kelsey Raffaele, 17, of Sault Ste. Marie, tragically died in a cell phone-related automobile crash in 2010. This scholarship has been created in her honor to inspire change in teens who drive distracted and help prevent car accidents.

Applicants are asked to submit a persuasive message that shows how you would convince young drivers to reduce distractions while driving. Messages may be in the form of a video, graphic or Tweet that resonates with teens and influences their driving behavior.

  *40,865 crashes with a driver age 15-19 in 2014 of which there were 69 fatalities and 479 serious injuries
  *Texting while driving increases your risk of crashing by 23 times
