Each year, many young lives are drastically changed or cut short by risky behaviors like driving under the influence of alcohol or texting while driving. Motor vehicle crashes involving teenagers are especially heartbreaking, because most of these teen tragedies are fully preventable. Metzger Wickersham law firm is now accepting entries for the tenth annual 2023 Road to Safety Scholarship Contest, which encourages young drivers to get involved in spreading the message to keep our roads safe.
Pennsylvania college-bound high school seniors may submit a creative project about the dangers of drunk driving or distracted driving for their chance to win college scholarship money. First, second and third place winners will be selected by our panel of judges and will receive $1,000, $750 and $500 scholarships, respectively.

Join Financial Aid experts Linda Pacewicz and Dan Wray of the Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency (PHEAA) for a 1 hour webinar to review the different borrowing options and examine the details associated with each option. Linda and Dan will answer your questions as you sort out the information and make decisions that are right for you and your family.
