Obral Silk & Pal Scholarship
At Obral, Silk & Pal, we have seen firsthand the devastation that an unexpected injury can have on individuals, families, and even entire communities. All too often, these injuries are caused in accidents that are entirely avoidable.
Auto collisions, in particular, are a leading cause of accidental injury in the United States. Motor-vehicle wrecks are responsible for more than 30,000 deaths each year.
Our goal at Obral, Silk & Pal not only is to help the injured, but also to do what we can to prevent these accidents from happening in the first place. With that in mind, we have opened an essay scholarship contest with topics that pertain to car accident avoidance.
The winner will receive a $1,000 scholarship. To apply, please send your résumé, contact details, proof of school attendance or acceptance, and your scholarship essay entry to [email protected].
The scholarship must be at least 750 words and cover one of these topics:
- How to discourage friends or loved ones from driving while intoxicated.
- How to prevent distracted driving accidents.
- New automotive safety technologies that are saving lives.
All entries must be submitted by the deadline of February 10, 2025. Obral, Silk & Pal reserves the right to publish any or all portions of submitted essays on their website or other electronic publications.
