  • Drunk driving accidents claim over 10,000 lives each year. Show or explain how drunk driving impacts your state, community and/or you, personally.
  • If teens could be elected to the South Carolina House or Senate, what issues facing teens would be among your top legislative priorities? What laws would you want passed or changed and how?

Joye Law Firm is accepting scholarship application packages until May 1, 2022. The creative entry may be an essay, video, infographic, song, or poem. Find more information about the guidelines for applying for a scholarship and an online application form.
