Becker Law Office, a personal injury law firm in Louisville, KY, is pleased to announce its 2019 scholarship essay contest. The scholarship contest is open to students planning to pursue any secondary education, college, or technical/vocational school.
The attorneys at Becker Law Office understand the importance of education and the financial strain that books, tuition, and other educational expenses can put on both students and their families.
To help with educational expenses, the Becker Law Office is offering a total of $5,000 in scholarships. Three scholarships will be awarded to help students further their education.
The winner of the first prize will receive a $2,500 scholarship. The second prize winner will receive $1,500, and the third prize winner will be awarded a $1,000 scholarship.
The recipients will be selected from students who submit an original essay on the following topic:
“Discuss some of the impacts a major auto accident caused by a drunk driver could have on each type of driver – teen, adult, elderly. How would this type of accident have an impact on these individuals outside of just a damaged vehicle?”
Drunk driving causes many preventable serious car accidents in Kentucky each year. The attorneys at Becker Law Office are committed to focusing attention on this public safety issue. Recently, Becker Law Office teamed up with Safe Ride KY to offer Lyft passes during the holidays to reduce the number of drunk drivers on the road.
“As a law firm, we powerfully believe in giving back to the community,” said Greg Bubalo, Managing Partner of Becker Law Office. “Each community faces serious issues from drunk driving. We hope that this scholarship will motivate our young people to start thinking about being the change they wish to see in the world.”
The Scholarship Contest is open to high school seniors throughout the United States.
Students who are interested in competing in the Becker Law Office scholarship program must submit a one-page essay of between 500 and 750 words along with a completed application package including a current academic transcript. More details about the 2019 Scholarship Program can be found here.
The deadline for submission of an essay is May 30, 2019.
All winners will be informed on or before June 15, 2019.
