We at The Abelson Law Firm were inspired by Julia's message and her advocacy for eradicating cyber bullying.
WASHINGTON, DC, July 09, 2015 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The Abelson Law Firm announced today that Julia Conley, a recent graduate of Long Reach High School in Columbia, Maryland, has won the law firm's First Annual Teen Safety Scholarship Competition. The video completion was hosted on the firm's website, www.SeekingJustice.com.
As a part of attorney Michael A. Abelson's commitment to Seeking Justice for people in the D.C. metro area, the competition called on area high school seniors to create public service announcement videos to "Take a Stand Against Cyber Bullying." Conley's video, which offered a firsthand account of the harm caused by online harassment, placed first among a series of entries.
"In her video, Julia speaks from the heart about the crushing damage that results from online taunts and humiliation - and she conveys a crucial message about the need to prevent online bullies from scarring the lives of their victims," Abelson said. "We at the The Abelson Law Firm were inspired by Julia's message and her advocacy for eradicating cyber bullying."
As the first-place winner, Conley receives a $2,500 college scholarship from the firm. Conley plans to attend the College of the Atlantic in Bar Harbor, Maine. She intends to pursue a career in Marine Biology.
Conley's video and the other entries are available for viewing on the firm's website, www.SeekingJustice.com. A scholarship selection committee chose the winning video. Scholarships were also awarded to second-place and third-place winners.
Voting on social media was used to select the runner-up winner. Visitors to the site voted for their favorite video and were urged to share it using the hashtag #StudyToStopCyberBullies.
