For the contest, students are required to write an essay of between 500 and 1,000 words in response to the question:
Describe how you would create a public awareness campaign to stop people – especially teens – from texting and driving. What would the slogan be? What steps would you take to promote this campaign? Which key business partners would you want to be involved, and how would they help the campaign? Describe how and why you think your idea would be successful.
“We are excited to once again give a deserving student the opportunity to advance their education,” said Carol Scott, CEO of AAA South Jersey. “This contest challenges students to be creative and develop a solution to a life-threatening issue facing teens and other drivers. We expect this year’s question to generate some very intelligent and thought-provoking responses from area students.”
More than 400 students entered the contest in 2013. This marks the eighth year that AAA South Jersey has sponsored the scholarship program.
