Thousands of teens nationwide see the consequences of texting and driving annually. This means that hundreds of teens die, thousands are involved in fatal accidents, and thousands more cause property damage due to their distracted driving. In 2018 alone, almost 3,000 people lost their lives due to a distracted driver. This is a shocking statistic for a problem that is easily avoidable.
This is why the attorneys at Willis & Toews, PLLC are working with students to increase awareness and reduce accidents. This is the goal of our Lock-down on Texting and Driving Scholarship, an opportunity for students to test their hand and graphic design and win money for their education.
Our team here at Willis & Toews has seen firsthand the consequences that come from texting and driving and are excited to see a generation that turns away from the risks of distracted driving.
We are calling all students with a creative touch to design a lock screen for their (and their friends’) phones that discourages texting and driving, while remaining tasteful and fun. We’re looking for out of the box thinking that works for all types of smartphones. The submissions of our top five finalists as well as the ultimate winner will be made available for download on our website.
Submissions will be judged based on creativity, use of colors, legibility and catchiness of words (if applicable), and usability.
