Teen Drinking and Driving Prevention PSA Scholarship

Scholarship Value: $2,500
Awards Available: 1
Award Deadline: Aug 15, 2024

The McKenzie Law Firm, P.C., created a $2,500 scholarship for the student who develops the best PSA video for teenagers about the dangers of drinking and driving. Our Teen Drinking and Driving Prevention PSA Scholarship will be awarded to the student who authors the most original. The final deadline for applying for the scholarship is August 15, 2024.

About the Teen Drinking and Driving Prevention PSA Scholarship

At McKenzie Law Firm, P.C., we have unfortunately seen the devastating effects of accidents when a teen driver consumes alcohol before driving. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as many as 2.4 million teenagers in high school drive after drinking each month. Additionally, one in five teenage drivers who were involved in a fatal auto accident had some amount of alcohol in their bloodstream.

On the plus side, the number of teenagers who say they engage in drinking and driving is about half what it was three decades ago. This shows that informative campaigns about the dangers of teenage drinking and driving are effective. Through our scholarship, we hope to add to the work being done to help teenagers learn why they should not drink and drive.
