Firm offers Distracted Driving Awareness Scholarship

Christensen Law, specializing in helping victims of automobile and truck accidents, has seen first hand the devastating effects of a distracted driving accident. The firm has represented clients who have suffered severe injuries that could have easily been avoided had the driver not looked down at their phone while driving. In an effort to reduce distracted driving accidents, Christensen Law is offering a $2,500 scholarship to one student to raise awareness and hopefully impact the number of distracted driving accidents in 2017.

The $2,500 scholarship contest is open to anyone in the United States who is pursuing post-secondary education at an accredited college or university. Proof of enrollment is required. The scholarship is open to every major or degree. A check for the full amount will be made payable to the recipient’s college or university and the student will be expected to submit receipts in accordance with IRS regulations.

To apply, students are to write an essay (maximum of 2,000 words) about how distracted driving impacted their life. The essay can be a personal story, a campaign they’ve been involved in, an article reference, or fiction or non-fiction story. The scholarship application and essay must be postmarked by July 15.  A decision will be rendered and a winner will be notified by August 15. Essays and completed application should be emailed to or mailed to:

This Distracted Driving Awareness scholarship is part of the firm’s multi-initiative commitment to raising awareness surrounding distracted driving. In 2015, Christensen Law implemented their Safe Ride Home Program, encouraging Michigan residents to choose a safe ride home after a night of drinking on Thanksgiving Eve, New Year’s Eve and St. Patrick’s Day by reimbursing their ride home.
