District Governor, Rod Funderburk, has challenged every club in our district to sponsor the essay contest in their local high school(s). Individual club winners will be entered into the District 7770 essay contest. The top three district winners will receive cash prizes and will be presented at the District 7770 Conference.
Rod’s vision of this contest is to build a student-centered sense of community among the district clubs and raise awareness for Rotary’s Four-Way Test to every high school student in our district. Additionally, it will encourage students and prepare them for the writing of their college essay.
The three Rotary Clubs of Hilton Head Island have teamed together to organize the local Four-Way Test Essay contest. Cash prizes will be awarded to the top local essays writers and their essays will be sent on to compete at the district Four-Way Test Essay contest. Please note the due date is January 15, 2016.
These scholarships are available to graduating high school students and home-schooled students who live and/or attend school on Hilton Head Island and are based on a combination of academic performance, extra-curricular clubs, sports and community service.
Community service will include both in-school and out-of-school activities.
A 500-word essay on what differentiates the applicant from his/her classmates, and why he/she is deserving of the scholarship is a consideration.
The Norman Reeves scholarship is for a student entering an engineering or related program.
Scholarships are merit-based, financial need is not considered.
Applications are only accepted electronically, and must be submitted as an attachment to an email addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Five $3,000 scholarships will be awarded. The deadline for receipt is April 6, 2016.
