You’ll need to submit a 500+ word essay on the following topic:
What can individual drivers do to help lower the amount of deadly crashes that occur on our nation’s highways?
This topic is especially of importance to our local Atlanta, Georgia community. One of the deadliest highways in the United states circles around our city. You don’t need to live in Atlanta to understand the life-altering consequences a serious car accident can have on a family, however. Every state and every city experiences deadly accidents.
Once the application period closes, Bey & Associates will decide on a winner based each essay’s feasibility, creativity, and the applicant’s level of knowledge in the topic as well as their ability to write a well-crafted essay. You don’t need to be an English major or a law major to write a winning essay. The winning essay will likely be one that explores the topic in a unique way– one that brings insight to the topic and sheds a new light on it.
By submitting your essay to us, you agree that your essay may be featured on our blog. We will publish the winning essay as well as 1-2 of the top contenders. Published essays may appear with minor edits.
To submit your application and essay, email us the completed essay, a digital copy of the acceptance letter from your college or graduate school verifying your first-year status, and some brief information about yourself to firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the body of your email include your name, address, phone number, and the name of your current/planned school. You may include a brief paragraph telling us about yourself and your career-related goals, but this part should be brief.
