Hannah Rice takes home her first place Arrive Alive award.

Portland — 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. Home-schooled Hannah Rice of Winterport, one of the first-place winners, wrote and performed a song that depicts how the decisions drivers make can negatively impact the lives of family and friends.

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.
