Students can apply for a chance to win $1,000 in financial support.

WAXAHACHIE, TX, October 18, 2023 /24-7PressRelease/ — Legislators, police officers, and concerned citizens have done their best to make the dangers of texting and driving known throughout the United States. Even so, the topic and practice remain hot-button issues.

Clay Jenkins & Associates want to encourage today’s young people to think about the dangers of texting and driving more seriously. As such, the firm intends to debut its “Texting and Driving: Raising Awareness” scholarship in 2024.

The scholarship promises $1,000 to a student who can elaborate on the primary dangers of texting and driving as well as the legal ramifications of the practice. Students must submit their 1,000-word essays by April 15, 2024, to qualify for consideration.

Clay Jenkins & Associates notes that the essay a student submits does not have to display an in-depth legal analysis of today’s texting and driving laws. Instead, the firm wants students to consider why drivers continue to use handheld devices behind the wheel and how that deliberate negligence poses a danger to everyone on the road.

When filing their applications through the firm’s website, students should also submit:

– An unofficial transcript proving their receipt of a 3.0 GPA or higher
– Proof of enrollment in an accredited university, college, or graduate school
– Proof of United States citizenship or proof of right to attend school in the United States
– The firm expects all students to agree to its scholarship terms and conditions before submitting their application materials.

Once the scholarship deadline passes, Clay Jenkins & Associates plans to form a scholarship committee to read through applications and award its support to the most deserving student. The firm encourages students from all backgrounds and educational paths to apply.

After considering the scholarship application pool, the firm will announce its “Texting and Driving: Raising Awareness” scholarship winner via press release and blog post. The winning student can expect the firm to send its $1,000 in financial support to the academic institution of their choosing.
