The Georgia workers’ compensation attorneys at Hasner Law understand that education is the foundation to a successful career, but this may not be financially feasible for students and their families. For this reason, Hasner Law is proud to announce its $1,000 Scholarship Essay Contest.
The 2018 Essay Topic
To participate in the contest, applicants are required to write a 600-word essay answering the following questions:
What is “distracted driving”? What are the consequences of distracted driving, and what are some solutions to decrease the amount of accidents caused by distracted driving in the future? Your essay should address the following:
- Explain what distracted driving is. (E.g. Is it limited to texting or talking on the phone, or is it more than that?)
- Describe how you have personally experienced distracted driving. (Do you text or talk on a cell phone while driving or do your friends and family members? What do you do if you are with someone who is driving while distracted?)
- What suggestions would you make to encourage others to avoid distracted driving?
- Please cite of any studies, statistics, or news stories that support your points.
- Applicants must be planning to enroll or currently enrolled in an accredited United States college or University during the 2018-2019 academic year.
- All incoming and existing undergraduate, graduate, and law students (1L, 2L, 3L) are eligible to participate.
How to Apply
To apply, please send the essay as an attachment in an email to firstname.lastname@example.org by October 15, 2018, 9 AM EST. In the body of the email, please include the following information:
