Of the many causes behind car accidents and the injuries that follow, texting while driving is especially dangerous. Always handling a mobile device can trick drivers into becoming comfortable while handling one on the road, but their attention is compromised and many will pay the price. As a personal injury law firm, Kisling, Nestico & Redick have witnessed the after math of texting while driving, and they want to do their part to make it stop.
As they’ve done in the past for other charity functions, Kisling, Nestico & Redick set up a scholarship contest to find solutions to a problem by going directly to those most affected, young people. The contest offered up $5,000 in tuition money to a high school student with the most persuasive idea for ending distracted driving.
For this contest, Elianna Norin, a high school senior from Hudson, Ohio, came out on top with her appeal to public service. Out of 400 entries, hers appealed the most. Joshua Angelotta, a Senior Partner at this law firm, went directly to Norin’s school to give her the scholarship check. Norin says she plans to put it to good use when she attends the Savannah College of Art and Design this coming fall.
High school students who’ll be going to college in 2020 can start submitting their ideas to Kisling, Nestico & Redick now until March of next year to be considered for the next scholarship contest.
