Students from Midcoast schools are among the winners and honorable mentions of the 14th annual Arrive Alive Creative Contest. Sponsored by the Law Offices of Joe Bornstein, the contest is open to graduating high school seniors in Maine.

The contest asks students to come up with a creative message about the dangers of drinking and driving and/or distracted driving. In past years, Mid-Coast School of Technology students from the Design/Technology program have submitted short films, animations, comic books and even a video game. This year however, winning students were honored for their digital illustrations.

Camden Hills High School’s Sylvan Gamage placed third with an illustration dealing with texting and driving he created at MCST; and another Camden Hills students Stephen Crawford  got honorable mention.

At a June 13th ceremony, the first place winners received new laptops; second and third place, Apple iPads; and all entrants receive prizes of some kind. In the past 14 years, the Law Offices of Joe Bornstein has given away more than $130,000 in prizes to help educate teenagers on the risks of dangerous driving. To see all the winners, visit
