'Words can Kill’ video scholarship contest announced

Jan 28, 2013

The Melrose, Seago & Lay Law Firm announced the first Words Can Kill Viral Video Scholarship Contest. There will be two separate $1,500 scholarships awarded — one to a Haywood County high school senior, and one to a senior from Jackson County.

The recipient will receive this one-time scholarship payable to their college, university, or trade school of choice.

Eligible students will submit a short video or PowerPoint focused upon educating other young people about the dangers of texting and driving.

The attorneys at Melrose, Seago & Lay recognize the danger of distracted driving, and they believe this contest will help educate students that distracted driving can be even more dangerous than drunk driving. An independent panel of judges will select the winners of this scholarship who will be eligible to receive the money for the fall semester, 2013.

It is hoped that the winning entries will not only help the recipients pay for their college or trade school education, but perhaps will go viral among their peers and spread this important information and save lives. Full details, registration materials, and contest rules are available at www.MountainVerdict.com , or call (800) 222-2430, or email melrose@mountainverdict.com. The deadline for submissions is April 15.
