With the popularity of water activities, water safety is an important topic for everyone. Even for those who personally don't like to be in the water or are near water, the opportunity to improve water safety can impact and benefit all.
We are excited to offer this scholarship in an effort to promote safe water practices. In a 750-1,000 word essay, discuss how a certain water-related activity can be improved to provide a safer environment for all. From jet-ski accidents and boating accidents in the ocean or on a lake, to the dangers of waterparks and community pools that have little security in the off-season. Identify a specific water safety issue or need in your community and recommend solutions that will help save lives.
Here at Domnick Cunningham & Whalen, we support, and respect those individuals dedicated to promoting water safety for others and would like to honor them with this scholarship.
