by | March 7th, 2014

Most of the citizens of Ohio would agree raising awareness of highway safety in the state is vital to protecting motorists from harm. With advancements in technology and the constantly changing scene of where people are gathering from, getting a message to the public can be an extremely difficult task.

The Ohio Car Accident Lawyers with Nurenberg, Paris, Heller & McCarthy explain that is why Ohio University’s Scripps College of Communication is offering a very special internship opportunity to nine students. Those who are selected to participate will be tasked with spreading the message of highway safety through a new program, known as Communication For A Safer Ohio.

An article from WOUB Public Media says three students will be selected from the college’s five schools each semester. Those individuals will then be charged with putting their communication skills to work by creating social media, videos, and web content that effectively spreads a message of safety to motorists.

Officials say students who participate will gain vital experience they may one day use in their career.

Those who wish to participate should visit the Ohio Department of Public Safety’s website to complete the online application immediately.

The Ohio Personal Injury Lawyers with Nurenberg, Paris, Heller & McCarthy applaud the efforts being made to improve Ohio highway safety and are hopeful the new internship program is a success!
