We can only move forward from our history if we learn from it and decide how we want to use that knowledge in the future. Let’s get a start on that future with the 15th Annual Black History Scholarship Essay Contest! We’ve teamed up with Cass Burch and additional sponsors to award multiple scholarships this year.

Entry for the contest is open now through 12am on Sunday, February 28, 2021. Judging will then be performed by a 3rd party and a winners reception will be held on Friday, March 12, 2021.

ESSAY TOPIC:

Please read the speech carefully and consider the following: In light of the recent events of 2020, including the BLM protests, the election of our first female vice-president of color, Kamala Harris, as well as the election of Raphael Warnock, Georgia’s first black senator, what parts of MLK’s “dream” have come to realization? What parts remain simply a dream? Please be specific with your examples and reasons.”
