This is an opportunity for students to reflect upon the value of education and knowledge.
Miami, Florida (PRWEB) February 10, 2015
International College Counselors is accepting entries for the 2015 International College Counselors High School Essay Contest.
Four college scholarships of $250 each will be awarded, three to students who attend school within Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach County; and one to a student from outside the Florida tri-county area, including outside the United States.
This is the fifth year International College Counselors has been awarding college scholarships. Students in grades 9-11 are asked to submit a 500-word essay that answers the question:
If you could create one class in high school that reflects your academic values, interests, and/or outlook on education, what would it be and why?
The deadline for receipt of essays is April 1, 2015. Contest rules and submission information can be found on the International College Counselors website.
“This is an opportunity for students to reflect upon the value of education and knowledge,” said college advisor Mandee Heller Adler, founder of International College Counselors. “The goal of the scholarship is to reward four students who understand and appreciate this value.”
Students can submit an essay written in either English or Spanish. Work will be judged on the basis of originality and effectiveness of argument or presentation. Students do not need to be clients of International College Counselors to enter or to win this annual college scholarship competition.
The International College Counselors High School Essay Contest established this Scholarship Fund to increase awareness of the value of higher education among high school students, as well as to give financial aid for tuition to college-bound students.
Good luck to all.
