Having been a personal injury attorney for almost 40 years, Joe has seen too many lives ruined by drinking and driving. To raise awareness about this important issue, Joe holds the Arrive Alive Creative Contest each year. Arrive Alive is open to graduating high school seniors throughout the state of Maine. Seniors may enter by submitting a creative project that sends a message to their peers about the dangers of drinking and driving and/or the dangers of distracted driving. Past entries have included essays, poems, paintings, public service announcements, videos, recorded songs, t-shirts, board games, drawings and more. First place winners receive a new laptop computer, second place winners receive a new iPad, and third place winners receive a new iPod. Everyone who enters the contest wins fun prizes from Joe.
This year's contest is closed (congrats to all the winners!), but there's always next year. If you know a rising senior in Maine, be sure to direct them to the Arrive Alive website for more information. And remember, be safe and arrive alive.
