The Skinner Law Firm $1,000 Scholarship Essay Contest

The Personal Injury Lawyers at Skinner Law Firm understand that education is the foundation to a successful career, but may not be financially feasible for students and their families.  For this reason, The Skinner Law Firm is proud to announce an annual $1,000 Scholarship Essay Contest.

The 2018 Essay Topic

To participate in the contest, applicants should write a 600-word essay answering the following question:

Cyberbullying is an issue that many people (including students) struggle with at one point. Pennsylvania does not have specific cyberbullying laws, however, cyberbullying falls under Pennsylvania’s harassment/stalking statues. Additionally, schools must have their own policy, publicly posted, and reviewed at least once per school year with students. Review your state’s cyberbullying laws/statutes, as well as your own experience/view on cyberbullying. Do you believe there are additional laws/provisions needed to punish cyberbullies? If so, what laws do you believe would benefit students in particular in your state?
