The Peck Law Group $1000 Elder Abuse and Neglect Scholarship with Social Media Challenge

Elder Abuse and Neglect is an ever growing problem facing our society today. By informing the public on the signs and symptoms we can help bring a stop to this dreadful act.

Elder Abuse and Neglect Scholarship Details

Videos are a terrific way to display information about elder abuse and neglect as they are interesting, easy to watch and easily shareable. At the Peck Law Group we are constantly moving towards the goal of eliminating elder neglect and abuse in California and throughout the United States.

Your submitted elder abuse video and article may inform thousands of Americans of the signs and symptoms of abuse and can possibly land you a $1000 scholarship if we choose your video!

Our challenge to you: Create a video detailing your experience with elder abuse and/or neglect, along with an article of at least 500 words. It can be your own experience, or something that has happened to a loved one. The more in-depth the better – be creative!

Please include a link to any referenced statistics or studies within your 500-word article. For example: “Past research studies have shown that there are significant correlations between the number of nurses and nurse aides, rate of staff turnover, number of beds at a facility, and the total incidents involving patient mistreatment.”

Please note: Videos and articles must be 100% original and created by you. Your submission will be checked for plagiarism and originality. If any part is plagiarized / not written by you it will not be accepted. Additionally, all images and content included in your video / article must be original and royalty free (no copy and pasting infographics and/or images from other websites without permission). If you’d like to use stock images, please use a site with royalty free images such as Pexels.
