GA Driver Safety, a top-rated provider of Joshua’s Law Compliant Georgia drivers education online at, is proud to announce an essay and scholarship contest to promote safe teen driving. Entitled, “Speak Up About Safe Driving: Ten Tips for Teen Drivers,” the scholarship is availble to any high school student or college student at an accredited institution in the United States.
“Safe driving is ultimately the reason behind drivers education not only in Georgia but in all the fifty states,” explained Azhar Mirza, managing director of GA Driver Safety. “Our scholarship and essay competition is meant to encourage teens to not only think about safe driving but think about how to influence other teen drivers to stay safe.”
To learn more and to access the application, please visit the essay contest page on our website. The essay contest is open now, and the scholarship will be announced and awarded on May 1, 2016. Participants must be high school or college students, but need not reside in Georgia.
Essay Contest and Scenario
The scenario is that the scholarship applicant is a passenger in a car with someone who is texting while driving, using their cell phone, or otherwise driving badly. In the essay, the applicant must brainstorm at least five but no more than ten novel ways to ask the driver to “driver responsibly.” The concept is to write an essay that will give other people ideas on how to politely, but firmly, ask drivers to be safe and not text and drive, drink and drive, fidget with the radio and drive, etc., but still remain polite and even cool. GA Driver Safety recognizes that for teens, especially, there can be peer pressure NOT to be the un-cool person who asks the driver to slow down, not text and drive, or generally pay attention to the road.
