The first place essay receives a $2,000 scholarship, second place receives $1,500, and the “Random Draw” entry is awarded $1,000. Scholarship awards must be used for post high school educational purposes, and are sent directly to your educational institution.
Essays are due by Monday, April 5, 2021. Full details and how to apply are available on The Wilcox Foundation web site.
