Now accepting submissions for 'No Need to Pay' scholarship

Distracted driving continues to be a problem, both here in Louisville and across the country. People just do not want to put down their phones long enough to get from point A to point B safely.

In fact, even though cars are reportedly safer than ever, car accident deaths are on the rise. This includes 3,450 deaths caused by distracted driving in 2016. Sadly, many of these accidents involved teen drivers who didn't grasp the seriousness of their actions until it was too late.

This ongoing problem is why our law firm, T.J. Smith, Attorney at Law, has made distracted driving the theme of the 2018 "No Need to Pay" scholarship.

About the contest

To enter the scholarship contest, college-bound high school seniors must submit an essay no longer than 500 words on the dangers of distracted driving and why it's important to keep the phone put away while behind the wheel.

Entries are due by May 30, 2018, at which point we will select a winner, who will receive a $2,500 scholarship to put toward his or her college education.

You can learn more about the contest and how to apply by visiting our website. You can also call our firm at (502)792-7937 or email us if you have any questions.

Our law firm has represented far too many family members left grieving the loss of loved ones due to distracted driving. We have seen first-hand the devastation that these accidents can cause. We hope that this contest can spark even the slightest change in attitudes about distracted driving and texting while driving.
