On December 10, Geotab hosted its third annual Phones Down, Eyes Up Benefit Concert to raise awareness about the dangers of distracted driving and walking. For every person that tuned in, Geotab donated $5 to Brake, a registered charity that promotes road safety and sustainable transport, and also supports road crash victims. Our most musical Geotabbers performed songs from a wide range of genres throughout the evening — rock, a capella, jazz — and showcased their secret (and not-so-secret) artistic talents. You can watch a recap of the event in this blog post.
We want to continue spreading festive cheer long after the holidays have ended, however. Applications and donations are now open for the 2021 Phones Down, Eyes Up Memorial Scholarship for artistic high school seniors in Canada.
The 2021 Phones Down, Eyes Up Benefit Concert
Brandon Walli Phones Down, Eyes Up Memorial Scholarship
The Phones Down, Eyes Up Memorial Scholarship was established in memory of Brandon Walli, who tragically lost his life age 23 while crossing the road in 2016. Brandon and his father, Tom Walli, both had a passion for music and this scholarship was established to spread joy to the lives of others through music and the arts.
This scholarship is for Canadian Grade 12 high school students who also share a love of music and the arts, and who wish to pursue a subject in those fields at post-secondary level.
- Canadian high school students graduating in 2021 focusing on the Arts, Creative Arts or Music at post-secondary level.
- We will take special notice of applicants with community and volunteer experience.
