Highland Park, IL (PRWEB) August 30, 2007
Seven lucky high school seniors will soon open their mailboxes to find a Scholarships.com check made out in their name. Each year, Scholarships.com awards $10,000 to the chosen participants in the Resolve to Evolve Essay Scholarship, and this year's winners have just been announced. Winning essays were selected by a panel of judges on the basis of argument persuasiveness, subject knowledge, and presentation. In an effort to address the issues written about by R2E entrants, Scholarships.com will also forward winning essays to appropriate authorities and/or administrators.
Each year, Scholarships.com provides two essay questions regarding current events about which entrants may write in hopes of being among the seven finalists who will receive a cash award to be applied to their education. The scholarship is an effort on the part of Scholarships.com to supply students with academic scholarships and to promote positive societal changes. This year, students discussed the validity of standardized testing and potential efforts to aid the environment.
The 2007 Resolve to Evolve Essay Scholarship winners will enter college this fall and, with the help of scholarship programs, such as Scholarships.com's Resolve to Evolve Essay Scholarship, will attempt to overcome the financial obstacles associated with higher education. 2006 Resolve to Evolve Essay Scholarship second place winner, Cassidy W. of Redmond, WA, stated, "Scholarships mean lessening the burden on my family and increasing my own feelings of independence."
