Scholarship Details 

This year’s scholarship program was focused on distracted driving, one of the most dangerous aspects of driving today and the cause of at least 3,000 motor vehicle accident deaths every year.

Scholarship applicants were asked to create a “Distracted Driving Family Plan” that highlighted the dangers of distracted driving. Applicants were instructed to proactively commit to a plan they created that would prevent harm caused by distracted driving. In their entries, applicants were instructed to include the following information about distracted driving:

  • The definition of distracted driving
  • Personal anecdotes in which the applicants were personally affected by distracted driving
  • Suggestions to encourage their family to avoid distracted driving
  • An opinion regarding whether smartphone technology is helpful, destructive, or both for teen drivers
  • Whether distracted driving has affected them or a loved one
  • Data regarding distracted driving, including statistics, studies, surveys, or news stories that support their positions

To be eligible, applicants had to be high school or college students in Albuquerque who want to attend an institution of higher learning. Applications were accepted from July 1, 2021 to December 15, 2021.

$5,000 in awards will be given to the distracted driving scholarship winners in the following amounts:

  • First place – $2,500
  • Second place – $1,500
  • Third place – $1,000
