BANGOR — Five recent high school graduates won first place in the 12th annual Arrive Alive Creative Contest sponsored by the law offices of Joe Bornstein. The contest asks students to come up with a creative message about the dangers of drinking and-or distracted driving.

Three of the top five winners were honored at the contest’s award ceremony in Bangor on June 21, including Katherine Higgins of John Bapst Memorial High School, Rebecca Mahar of Washington Academy and Ramirez Robinson of Southern Aroostook Community School.

The Arrive Alive Creative Contest is open to graduating high school seniors in Maine who may enter a creative project of their choice. First place winners receive a new laptop computer, second and third place winners receive new iPads, and every student who enters receives prizes from the firm.

A complete set of rules and all past winning entries may be viewed online at arrivealivecreativecontest.com or on Facebook. In the past 12 years, the law offices of Joe Bornstein has given away more than $110,000 in prizes to educate teenagers on the dangers of driving.
