Description is proud to award $10,000 in scholarships this year to three students, who share their vision on the dangers of drug and alcohol abuse. The scholarship award monies may only be used toward tuition, or expenses related to your education. There is no cost to enter the contest. Scholarship winners will be notified via email, and we'll make a public announcement of each winner within 30 days of the announcement. Three awards will be given to qualifying students who write the winning essays for first, second, and third places. We're looking for essays that describe the views of those passionate about drug and alcohol addiction and the effects it has on people, their health, society, and more. Maybe you have a loved one who has struggled with drug or alcohol abuse, or maybe you have struggled in the past, maybe you're currently struggling and trying to find the help you need. We welcome and encourage you to enter the contest, share your story, and profess your dedication to addiction awareness efforts. It's not necessary that you have a history with drug and alcohol addiction to enter the contest. The only thing necessary is your commitment to expressing your views for: 1. The ways in which addiction affects society today. 2. What can we do to reduce these effects, help people, and lessen the burden of addiction on society? Essay submissions should be no longer than 1,200 words. Applicants will be awarded based on the quality of the content, degree of originality, and personal style. Contest judges will be in search of essays that are not only structured and organized well, but with strong, logical arguments.
