Kelsey’s Law Distracted Driving Awareness Scholarship

The second annual Kelsey's Law Distracted Driving Scholarship for Michigan high school juniors and seniors has launched. Kelsey Raffaele, 17, of Sault Ste. Marie, tragically died in a cell phone-related automobile crash in 2010. This scholarship has been created in her honor to inspire change in teens who drive distracted and help prevent car accidents.

Some startling facts from the Michigan State Police Traffic Crash Database:

  • 40,865 crashes with a driver age 15-19 in 2014 of which there were 69 fatalities and 479 serious injuries
  • Texting while driving increases your risk of crashing by 23 times
  • Car accidents are the No. 1 killer of teens

In October, $5,000 worth of scholarships will be awarded to Michigan students. Applicants are asked to submit a persuasive message that shows how you would convince young drivers to reduce distractions while driving.

Messages may be in the form of a video, graphic or Tweet that resonates with teens and influences their driving behavior.

Entries will be judged and critiqued on the following factors:

  • Ability to persuade others, especially teen drivers, to stop texting while driving.
  • Ability to grab the attention of your friends, peers and family.
  • A clear and understandable message.
  • Demonstration of your personal creativity and ingenuity.
