WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (March 16, 2012) –
The Winston-Salem law firm Daggett Shuler has kicked off the 22nd year of Safe Sober Prom Night by announcing the winner of the annual T-shirt design contest. The winner of the 2012 Safe Sober Prom Night T-shirt design contest is Kyla Stimpson, a senior at Career Center High School and Reagan High School. Kyla’s design will be featured on more than 13,500 t-shirts distributed to high school students in the Triad area as part of the Safe Sober Prom Night program.
During a surprise presentation at the Career Center, Kyla was presented with the very first 2012 T-shirt off the press and a scholarship check for $500 by attorneys David Daggett and Griff Shuler. Also in attendance were Kyla’s family, school officials, and the Safe Sober staff.
Safe Sober Prom Night is a non-profit organization co-founded in 1991 by attorney David Daggett. The goal of Safe Sober Prom Night is to provide ongoing awareness and encourage positive peer pressure to reduce underage drinking and driving among young people.
Safe Sober Prom Night encourages high school students to be safe with a written pledge to stay drug and alcohol free on prom night. Students are given incentives to keep their commitment, including scholarships and a chance to win $1,000 for their school. To date, more than 400,000 students have signed the Safe Sober pledge.
David Daggett has received numerous accolades and awards for the Safe Sober program, including The North Carolina Governor’s Highway Safety Award for Public Service, an honor never before given to a law firm. He has also been given the American Bar Association Award for Dignity in Lawyer Advertising for his promotion of Safe Sober Prom Night. He has also received the Ford Ironman Everyday Hero Award which included being featured on ESPN and Universal sports.
