3rd Annual Freedom Scholarship Essay Contest

| No TrackBacks

The 2010 Annual Freedom Scholarship Essay Contest is now being offered to District 6 college-bound students to give them a chance to pay for their education in exchange for their statement on what the concept of "freedom" means to them.

A major objective of this contest is to help recent high school graduates in the Milwaukee area appreciate the sacrifice that African-American men and women have made, and to recognize their duty to continue the legacy of freedom through their activism and vigilance. Two five-hundred dollar scholarships will be awarded.

The contest deadline is June 19, 2010, and is part of the Milwaukee's annual Juneteenth Day festivities.

Use the following links to learn more about the Freedom Scholarship and to download an application:

To be eligible to enter the contest students must be: recent high school graduates (2008, 2009 or 2010) and residents in Milwaukee's 6th aldermanic district; accepted to a two or four-year college or university (verification will be required); able to submit a completed application.
