Alert Scholarship

Description

You can help others become more alert by speaking out against the dangers of drug and alcohol abuse. All eligible high school seniors may enter the Alert college scholarship essay contest. With each edition of Alert magazine, Golden West Publications awards a $500 college scholarship to the writer of the best drug and/or alcohol abuse-related essay that we receive for that state/region. You must have plans to attend college after graduation (the college you will attend can be located in any state). Write an essay about a personal encounter you or someone you know has had with drug and/or alcohol abuse. In your essay explain how the situation was dealt with, what you learned from it, what others can learn from the experience, and what was right or wrong (in your opinion) about the way the incident or problem was handled. Scholarship essays are judged in the same way that essays written for a high school English class would be: thesis statement, supporting content, grammar, punctuation, etc. Essays must be typed, double-spaced, and 650800 words in length. Essays must include an official copy of your high school transcripts. Essays must include an official copy of your high school transcripts. Essays must also include a recent photo. Scholarship winners will have their picture reprinted in our magazine along with their winning essay, so please send a good quality color photo (no blurry printouts). No application is needed and there is no deadline, but you must meet the eligibility requirements and include all of the items listed above to be considered. Mail your essay, transcripts, photo, school name, and contact info (phone number, address, and e-mail).
