Hackard Law 2016 Scholarship: All Entries Received

Hackard Law Scholarship.jpg

On Tuesday of this week, our 2016 Hackard Law Academic Scholarship Contest entered a new phase. We've received all of the scholarship applications. Our essay topic was to "identify the most important life lesson you have learned from a grandparent or elder," and the prize is a $2,500 scholarship towards the winner's higher education.

Now that the contest period is up, I can say that I am impressed with our applicants and their life experience. We received 200 entries from students throughout the United States, and from practically every conceivable background. A majority of this year's entrants are undergraduates, while ten percent are law students. Also included are graduate students as well as future doctors and nurses. The academic institution with the largest group of contributing students was Miami-Dade College.

We've read some amazing and heartwarming accounts of life lessons learned at the feet of grandparents and elders, and it's encouraging to know that loving family relationships are still strong, from sea to shining sea.

To the contestants: I'd like to thank each and every one of you for your contribution and hard work in applying for the scholarship. You've worked hard, and please continue on this path to success. We'd like to help everyone out, but we have to pick one winner, which will be announced at our site and by email on Friday, September 9th.

So thank you again to all applicants for your efforts, and we'll soon renew our scholarship for next year with another original theme to write about. Good luck to you all!
