Essay Contest and Scenario
With a purpose of promoting safe teen driving, not just in Georgia but throughout the United States, the scholarship contest takes a two-pronged approach. First, it asks applications to imagine the following 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.
Second, once an essay has been approved, it is posted to the website. There, interested teens can vote via Facebook, Twitter, and/or Google+ by sharing the essay. 50% of the evaluation will come from social shares.
