DAHS Senior Megan Kelly Receives Award

DAHS Senior Megan Kelly Receives Award for her Distracted Driving Video
Posted on 07/26/2021
Each year, Metzger Wickersham law firm hosts a student scholarship contest aimed at gaining awareness about the safety issues facing teens on the road today. Students were asked to come up with a memorable, innovative and effective way to motivate drivers to be more safety-conscious behind the wheel. Ninety-four high school seniors throughout Pennsylvania submitted a variety of original entries, such as videos, illustrations, songs and posters for their chance to win college scholarship money.

Senior, Megan Kelly was recently announced as the first-place winner for her video on distracted driving. 

Megan shared, Unfortunately, I know a couple families that have been affected by distracted drivers. I have been working hard in my high school video class making PSA's for many different topics, and I felt I could create a meaningful message through my video that captures the dangers of texting and driving. I don't think many people understand the severity of distracted driving, and how keeping your eyes off the road for one second can damage you or someone else's entire future. One thing that occurred to me during this process was that the simple act of keeping your phone out of sight can possibly save a life. Distracted driving is not just a danger to yourself, but a danger to everyone surrounding you.”
