President Abraham Lincoln once proclaimed, “My dream is of a place and a time where America will once again be seen as the last best hope of earth”. Today, over 150 years later, this patriotic belief remains ingrained in the very fabric of our republic.
The 2017 Lincoln Scholarship Contest invites Oakland County high school and college students to explore “What makes America great?” in an essay or other creative work.
The winner of this contest will receive one $1000 scholarship along with VIP tickets to the 128th Annual Oakland County Lincoln Day Dinner.
Interested students may submit an essay of up to 1000 words, or another form of creative work addressing the prompt of “What makes America great?”
Award Selection Criteria
Essays and other creative work will be judged on how well the applicant articulates elements of American culture which highlight our exceptionalism and uniqueness as a nation, as well as identify the importance of protecting these aspects.
Applicants submitting non-traditional creative work are encouraged to include a written explanation of their project. Creative and “outside-the-box” ideas are always encouraged.
