Do You Know a Journalist?

As many of you know, one of Curcio Law’s passion projects is to educate the public about the dangers of distracted driving. Over the years, Tom has spoken on this topic at local schools, to newly licensed drivers, and to many local community organizations on behalf of the (End Distracted Driving) campaign.

One of Tom’s colleagues, Joel Feldman, and his wife, Dianne Anderson, established the “Casey Feldman Foundation” following the death of their daughter Casey who a distracted driver killed in 2009. Through, a campaign of the Foundation, they have been working tirelessly to reduce crashes caused by distracted driving.

Recently they have devised a new idea for getting the word out about the dangers of distracted driving.

“My daughter Casey had a passion for journalism. At the time of her death, she was the news editor of her college newspaper. In expressing their condolences, many of her colleagues told us that Casey taught them that reporters have the power to change the world for the better by telling great stories. Casey was killed by a distracted driver, and since her death, we have been working to reduce distracted driving crashes. Recognizing the power of the press to amplify what all of us who are involved in transportation safety do, my wife and I created an award for transportation reporters in Casey’s memory. By doing so, we wanted to encourage and reward reporters who tell great stories that are helping to keep us safer on our roads.” – Joel Feldman

 Unfortunately, Curcio Law has experienced the results of increased traffic crashes, pedestrian injuries, and deaths over the years, which have only worsened since the pandemic. It is now more important than ever to honor and recognize those whose reporting informs and educates the public about the traffic safety crisis. The Award is co-sponsored by the Casey Feldman Foundation and the Journalism Department at the College of Media, Communication, and Information at the University of Colorado Boulder.

If you are aware of a journalist who has written about Distracted Driving between November 1, 2021, and October 31, 2022, please encourage them to submit their work by next Friday, December 9, 2022. 

There are three awards: the first-place award of $2,000 and 2 honorable mentions, each in the amount of $500.
