One Local High School Senior To Receive $5,000 College Scholarship For Winning Essay
AAA South Jersey is sponsoring its annual essay contest for local high school seniors. The winner will receive a $5,000 scholarship toward a two-or-four year accredited educational institution.
The contest is open to all high school seniors attending school in Camden, Cumberland, Gloucester or Salem counties. Entry forms are available at AAA South Jersey offices in Voorhees, Sewell, Logan Township and Millville. Click here to download. The deadline for entries to be received by AAA South Jersey is March 30.
For the contest, students are required to write an essay of between 500 and 1,000 words in response to the question:
Teens are well aware of the dangers of texting and driving, yet the use of these devices continues. What additional measures can be taken – either by car manufacturers, cell phone manufacturers, service providers, law enforcement or other organizations – that would stop teens from using their phone while driving? On a personal level, what would prevent you and your friends from texting and driving?
“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 allows us the opportunity to get tremendous feedback from students on a very important 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 375 students entered the contest in 2012. This marks the seventh year that AAA South Jersey has sponsored the scholarship program.
