  • AAA South Jersey is sponsoring its annual essay contest for local high school seniors, with the grand prize being a $5,000 scholarship toward a two-or-four year accredited educational institution.

    The contest is open to all high school seniors attending school in Camden, Cumberland, Gloucester or Salem counties. Entry forms are available at AAA South Jersey offices in Voorhees, Sewell, Logan Township and Millville. Students can also download the entry form by going to the scholarship provider's website. The deadline for entries to be received by AAA South Jersey is March 31.

    For the contest, students are required to write an essay of between 500 and 1,000 words in response to the question:

    "Cell phones are an integral part of teenagers' lives. Despite statistics, enforcement and numerous advertising campaigns showing the dangers of texting and distracted driving, teens continue to text or talk on the phone while driving. What - if anything - can be done to stop teens from using a phone while driving? What could be done to stop you and your friends from texting and driving?"

    For more information or to apply, please visit the scholarship provider's website.
