Driver Intelligence™ Scholarship Program
For several years Top Driver, the premier driving school in the Midwest, promoted its Driver Intelligence™ Scholarship program. The top three entries were awarded $500 to be used towards college tuition or expenses.
The Driver Intelligence™ Scholarship included any Illinois residents between the ages of 14 and 19 years old. This opportunity provided Illinois youth with the platform to address the serious issue of reckless/distracted driving among teens and behind the wheel dangers.
Judging was done by a committee of Top Driver staff who based their decision on how effective the message was, concept, creativity, and execution of the idea.
Winners were announced on Top Driver’s Instagram Live feed, @topdriveredu.
We are currently reevaluating the Driver Intelligence™ Scholarship Program and will notify our students if the Program will be re-launched.
