Contest Raises Saviourites’ Awareness About Drunk Driving

Junior Olivia Boisrand and freshman Olivia Calamia of St. Saviour H.S., Park Slope, were the winners of an annual essay contest co-sponsored by their school and Duffy Funeral Home, Park Slope. The theme of the contest was the dangers of driving while intoxicated, which was established to raise students’ awareness about real-life issues. For the contest, the student body watched a documentary about a young man who drove drunk and killed a woman. Students were then asked to respond in essay format to what they saw. Faculty members reviewed the inspiring work submitted by over 200 Saviourites and selected the winners.
