Cottrell Law Office Scholarship
Did you know that drivers 15-19 years old make up the largest proportion of distracted drivers in fatal car crashes? According to a Teen Distracted Driver study conducted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, a staggering 9% of all teen auto accident deaths in 2017 involved distracted driving. Our experienced personal injury lawyers have seen the devastation that distracted drivers can cause. And we want to do anything that we can to stop it. In an effort to reduce the number of teen distracted driving accidents, the Missouri and Arkansas car accident attorneys at the Cottrell Law Office are holding a $1,500 scholarship contest where one lucky student will win.
We would like eligible students to write a 750-word essay about their life-changing experience with distracted driving and how they would stop others from doing the same:
-How did you change your ways for the better?
-What would you tell your peers that would convince them to never drive distracted?
