It was announced on Monday October 22 that Kearsley High School senior Jenna Robinson won the 2018 Kelsey’s Law Distracted Driving Scholarship.

The scholarship is in honor of Kelsey Raffaele, who was killed in a 2010 car accident while using her cell phone.

From the Kelsey's Law Scholarship site:
"All applicants were encouraged
to submit a persuasive message that shows how they would convince young drivers to reduce distractions while driving. Entries were judged and critiqued on the following factors:

  • Ability to persuade others, especially teen drivers, to stop texting while driving.
  • Ability to grab the attention of your friends, peers and family.
  • A clear and understandable message.
  • Demonstration of your personal creativity and ingenuity."

Jenna’s submission for “Best Tweet” was chosen from over 100 submissions from other high school students in Michigan.

Jenna was awarded a $500 scholarship to use to pursue higher education after her graduation from high school.
