Scholarship Essay Topic
Write an original public safety announcement (between 1,000 to 1,500 words) that a) raises awareness of the current climate concerning commercial truck accidents and b) proposes a creative way to increase road safety here in Ohio and throughout our nation.

We encourage participants to take an innovative approach to the task and be as creative as they wish. We want to hear your perspective on the matter. Several factors contribute to road safety hazards in commercial traffic accidents, including distracted or fatigued driving, speeding, improper cargo loading, driving under the influence of alcohol and drugs, and even prescription and over-the-counter medication.

You can address these challenges in your scholarship essay if you would like. We are especially interested in practical and viable solutions to truck safety challenges.
