The Road to Scholarships

tips and hints for junior high & high school students planning to use scholarship monies to pay for their continuing education

No Essay Scholarship

A scholarship with no essay? How can that be? After all, don’t I keep telling  you to practice writing so your essays will be the best they can be? Don’t your teachers continually give out writing assignments to help you improve your writing?  I’ll bet you didn’t think there was such a thing as a scholarship that didn’t include an essay.

Will there is. There aren’t many, but there are a few. Today’s scholarship is one that does not require an essay. It requires a picture. A picture  you draw. A picture you draw that tells a story. Today’s scholarship is for a cartoon.

Not just any cartoon though.  A cartoon that “express your personal vision of peace, diversity and concern for others.” This artistic scholarship/contest is sponsored by The Liberty Museum.

The Museum’s goal is to channel the specialized art form of cartoons for a positive purpose. To help them reach that goal each year they have a specific theme. This year’s theme is: Dreams of Peace

The contest has two division, adult (age 18 and over) and student (under 18).  More information, the complete rules, and the entry form can be found here.

The deadline is March 31.
