Each day, over 200 people are injured and 4 people are killed in traffic accidents in Pennsylvania.
At Metzger Wickersham, we have represented thousands of people injured in auto accidents, and we know how a serious or fatal car crash can devastate a victim’s family, friends and the surrounding community.
Many motor vehicle crashes are caused by risky behaviors like driving under the influence of alcohol or texting while driving. These types of accidents are especially heartbreaking because they are fully preventable.
Metzger Wickersham’s scholarship program encourages students to take a stand against dangerous driving. The Road to Safety Scholarship Contest provides high school seniors with the opportunity to submit a creative project about the dangers of drunk driving and/or distracted driving for the chance to win college scholarship money. The ultimate goal of the contest is to help spread the message to drive with safety in mind all the time!
First place winners will receive a $1,000 scholarship, second place winners will receive $750 and third place winners will receive $500.
Enter Metzger Wickersham’s Road to Safety Scholarship Contest by submitting a creative project that educates people about the perils of dangerous driving. In your own creative way, tell us how teens can drive with safety in mind, all the time.
