The attorneys at Albertson & Davidson, LLP understand the financial burden associated with attaining a college education and believe in creative approaches to solving issues. The law firm is pleased to sponsor our 2019 Infographic Scholarship Contest to help students with college expenses. By offering the scholarships, Albertson & Davidson hopes to help students attain their educational and professional goals.
To select the winners of the scholarships, Albertson & Davidson is inviting the submittal of original infographics that deliver information about one of the following topics in creative ways:
Warning Signs of Dementia—The population of older adults in California and throughout the U.S. is expanding, bringing an increase in the number of people affected by dementia. While most seniors 65 and older do not have cognitive impairment, about one is 10 has dementia, according to a new study by the National Bureau of Economic Research and the Rand Corp. Understanding the warning signs of dementia and Alzheimer’s can help families recognize when their elderly parents need help with managing their financial affairs.
Warning Signs of Nursing Home Abuse—People who depend on nursing home caregivers for assistance with basic needs such as eating meals and toileting are vulnerable to abuse, neglect and exploitation. It is important for families that have relatives in nursing homes to be able to recognize warning signs of nursing home abuse so that they can protect their loved ones.
The three students selected as winners will receive scholarships in the amounts of:
- 1st Prize—$1,500
