The “First Step” to Distraction-Free Driving Scholarship

In an effort to reduce the devastating consequences of distracted driving among young drivers, the auto accident lawyers at Sutliff & Stout are offering a $2,500 scholarship to students.


We are asking students to write an essay of at least 500 words detailing their most common distracted driving habits, and to describe the concrete steps they will take to put an end to those habits.

Eligibility Rules

  • Applicants must be EITHER out-going high school seniors (graduating summer 2018) OR students currently enrolled in a college, trade school, or university as of the start of the fall 2018 semester.
  • Must submit essay by Wednesday, August 1, 2018

Scholarship FAQ

 What do I need to write about in my essay?

We want to encourage students to examine their driving habits and identify ways in which they commonly become distracted behind the wheel. These could include obvious examples such as texting, tweeting, or changing music, or a less obvious example like turning to talk to friends or simply playing the music so loudly that they cannot hear other vehicles. Next, we want students to consider and document concrete steps to ending those distracted driving behaviors.”
