Due April 30th, 2017 - Distracted driving causes far too many car accidents. The personal injury lawyers of Marks & Harrison – a firm that has served Virginia residents for more than 100 years – want to do something about this serious issue. Marks & Harrison proudly announces a scholarship competition aimed at raising awareness about the dangers of distracted driving. The goal is to foster discussion about how to prevent these devastating accidents. At the same time, to help young people pursue a higher education.

Distracted driving is a problem among drivers of all ages. However, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) statistics show that it is an especially serious issue among drivers between the ages of 15 and 19. The agency reports that this age group has the highest proportion of distracted drivers involved in fatal auto accidents. Share your perspective on distracted driving by submitting an essay or video that addresses this topic. What can be done to prevent driving distractions within the teen community to promote safe driving among teens?

Entries should be no more than 2 minutes in length.
