Kentucky rising juniors have chance to win scholarship, photo shoot

A rising junior at one of Kentucky’s public or private high schools will win a $500 scholarship and a photo shoot at their school through the “Promote Your School” scholarship contest, sponsored by the Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority (KHEAA). A school must participate in the Kentucky Educational Excellence Scholarship (KEES) program for one of its students to be eligible to enter. To be considered for the scholarship, students must submit an essay addressing one of these subjects: • “How I will inspire others to do better” • “How education makes a community stronger.” The essay must be no more than 200 words in length and cannot mention the student’s name, school, county or community. The essay should not identify the student by race, gender, religion or other manner. Essays in excess of 200 words or ones that include identifying information will be disqualified. The essay topic must be clearly indicated at the top of the page. The student’s name, address and high school must be listed at the bottom of the essay. The student must be a high school junior during the 2021–2022 school year. For contest details, visit kheaa.com/website/contest/intro. Photos from the winning school will be used in KHEAA publications and on KHEAA websites. To enter, mail your essay to KHEAA Publications, P.O. Box 798, Frankfort, Ky. 40602. You may also email your essay to publications@kheaa.com. The winner will be chosen by a committee of KHEAA employees. The deadline for submissions is May 31, 2021. The scholarship funds will be sent to the winner’s school when he or she enters college as a freshman. KHEAA is the state agency that administers the Kentucky Educational Excellence Scholarship (KEES), need-based grants and other programs to help students pay their higher education expenses. Kentucky Lottery funds pay for many of those programs. In addition, KHEAA disburses private Advantage Education Loans for its sister agency, the Kentucky Higher Education Student Loan Corporation (KHESLC).
