Text Free For Tita Bi-Annual Scholarship

The silver lining to this horrible trend of accident fatalities is that distracted driving accidents are completely preventable. With increased education, awareness, and enforcement, we can reduce distracted driving accidents together. While the statistics are troubling, we are confident that people not only care about this issue but have ideas to help. The Text Free For Tita Scholarship was founded not only to honor Tita, but to help ensure accidents like Tita’s no longer continue to occur. The winner of our bi-annual scholarship will be awarded $1,000 for their contribution to the campaign.

Patterson Law Group is looking for students to use their creativity to create & share ways to reduce the number of accidents due to distracted driving in Texas. Submissions can be in the following forms:

  • Video or other multimedia
  • Written (like a poem)
  • Photo or Graphic (including a viral Facebook post or mock-up of a billboard)

Then post your submission on Facebook or Instagram with the hashtags #TextFreeForTita and #scholarship (must be public) and tag @pattersonlawgroup.

We encourage applicants to get creative! We are excited to provide this opportunity to students and look forward to reviewing the campaign proposals.

A few notes:

  • Photos must NOT depict gruesome and/or identifiable car crashes.
  • Photos must NOT show branding of any automakers.
  • Photos must NOT be taken inside vehicles (whether you’re driving or not).
  • Multiple entries accepted.
  • Posts/entries must be publicly viewable using the hashtags #TextFreeForTita and #scholarship and @pattersonlawgroup must be tagged.
