Sobo & Sobo’s scholarship contests present high school seniors across New York State with creative challenges to compete for scholarship funding. This year’s challenge required participants to create and submit homemade videos following one of three prompts:

  • Sharing their personal experience with personal injury law,
  • Making a creative commercial for Sobo & Sobo, or
  • Creating a music video about personal injury law and/or Sobo & Sobo.

For the first time ever, Sobo & Sobo decided to award three different students with the scholarship prize. This decision was made due to the exceptional creativity, thorough research into the field of injury law, and remarkable talent displayed by Ms. Buxbaum, Mr. Mitchell, and Mr. Butchko.

Alexa Buxbaum and her talented friends created a jingle for Sobo & Sobo inspired by a trending TikTok song. The Sobo & Sobo team was captivated by their heartfelt lyrics, stellar editing, and incredible talent. Her video conveyed the message that during times of injury, practical help from supportive professionals is always more valuable than sympathy and apologies. She also effectively incorporated the firm’s values and their mission of “Winning Together” for the safety of communities.

Jackson Mitchell submitted an outstanding commercial that he produced with his friends. The Sobo team was highly impressed by the quality of writing, production, acting, and editing in his video. In under a minute, Mr. Mitchell managed to succinctly capture the firm’s mission, values, and commitment to client satisfaction, all while delivering a fun and entertaining presentation.
