COAST CITIES —This year’s scholarship essay contest is being sponsored by the Charlotte Mousel Scholarship for High School Seniors.
The subject this year is “Why is the Constitution unique in human history and why each U.S. citizen should value its contents.” The essay should reflect your knowledge of the Constitution and what it means to you. Essays must be typewritten, not to exceed 1,000 words. Awards will be given in the amount of $1,200 for first place and $800 for second place.
Criteria will be based on the following: scholarship achievement, school activities, community involvement, political activities, general appearance of the application, and critical thinking demonstrated in the essay. Winners have the chance to compete for more scholarship money at higher levels in the county.
Deadline for submission is March 1. For more information, e-mail [email protected] or contact Mary Humphrey at P.O. Box 4176, Carlsbad, Ca. 92008 for an application.
