Earlier this year we announced Hackard Law's 2016 Scholarship Essay Contest. The winner of this contest will be awarded a $2500 one-time scholarship to a college student. The deadline for applications for the scholarship is August 16, 2016. The winner of the contest will be announced on or before September 9, 2016.
The conditions of eligibility and essay guidelines are listed on Hackard Law's website.
The essay topic is:
Identify the most important life lesson you have learned from a grandparent or elder.
Having devoted much of my legal practice to fighting elder abuse, this is a topic near to my heart, and I can already see from the applications that are coming in that the subject matter touches many hearts.
For those who have already applied - I say thank you for your thoughts and efforts. For those who will be applying by the August 16th deadline, I encourage you to give the subject thought and reflection.
We look forward to reading about the rich and diverse experiences that taught you important life lesson.
Good luck to all of you!
