Erskine Academy graduate Alexis Bonenfant won first-place in the 13th 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 driving and/or distracted driving.

Bonenfant was chosen as one of five first-place winners and received a new laptop computer for her “Book of Life” entry depicting how the decisions drivers make can both positively and negatively impact their lives, according to a news release from the Bornstein law offices. The Vassalboro native was honored among the top 20 winners statewide at an award ceremony on June 14.

The 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, second- and third-place winners receive a new iPad, and every student who enters receives fun prizes from the law firm. Since 2004, more than 750 graduating seniors have entered the contest from 115 Maine high schools.

A complete set of rules and all past winning entries can be viewed online at or on Facebook. In the past 13 years, the Law Offices of Joe Bornstein has given away more than $120,000 in prizes to help educate teenagers on the risks of dangerous driving. The firm’s dedication to the Arrive Alive Creative Contest made them a finalist for the American Association for Justice Trial Lawyers Care Award in 2014.
