Road to Safety Scholarship Contest
Each year, many young lives are drastically changed or cut short by risky behaviors like driving under the influence of alcohol or texting while driving. Motor vehicle crashes involving teenagers are especially heartbreaking,because most of these teen tragedies are fully preventable.
At Wetzer-Wickersham personal injury law firm, we are committed to promoting education and awareness about safety driving through community outreach. We would like to remind you of our annual ROAD to SAFETY SCHOLARSHIP CONTEST, which encourages young drivers to get involved in spreading the message to keep our roads safe.
Graduating,college -bound seniors may submit a creative project about the dangers of drunk and/or distracted driving for their chance to win college scholarship money. Selected first, second and third place winners will receive $1000,$750 and $500 scholarships,respectively.
This year’s contest rules vary slightly from past years. We are no longer accepting written essays. The contest is now geared more toward audio/visual projects.

Each year over 300 American high school students receive full scholarships to become exchange students to Germany, where they will live with Host Families for a year and attend German schools.This program is supported, as well as funded, by the United States Congress and the German Bundestag.
