Grade point average of 2.5 or better with plans to attend college after graduation (the college you will attend can be located in any state). No application - essay only. Submit transcripts and a photo along with the essay.

Submit an essay (650-800 words) about a personal encounter you or someone you know had with drug and/or alcohol abuse. In your essay explain how the situation was dealt with, what you learned from it, what others can learn from the experience, and what was right or wrong (in your opinion) about the way the incident or problem was handled. Scholarship essays are judged in the same way that essays written for a high school English class would be: thesis statement, supporting content, grammar, punctuation, etc.

Scholarship is ongoing and there is no deadline. One entry is awarded for each publication of the Alert magazine (two times each year). Winners receive $500 and essay is published with photo.
