For young people, few things are more exhilarating than earning the privilege to drive, but in today’s world simply traveling down the road can become dangerous thanks to our numerous distraction. Texting while driving has become a serious problem among young people, resulting in crashes and serious injuries, at times even costing the lives of drivers and passengers. Personal injury firm Kisling, Nestico & Redick have taken stock of the problem and are looking to young people to help come up with a method of ending distracted driving for good.
A $5,000 scholarship was offered up to any high school student who could propose a compelling method for getting people to give up texting while driving. An 18 year-old, Elianna Norin from Hudson, Ohio, bested 400 other entrants with a proposal that turned to public service as a way to get people to be more mindful when behind the wheel.
It was Senior Partner Joshua Angelotta who delivered the scholarship check to Elianna at school after naming her the winner. The high school senior is looking forward to putting the award money toward her tuition at Savannah College of Art and Design.
