We're always impressed with all our scholarship entries, and this year was no different. After viewing over 150 wonderful entries, our outside panel of community judges voted on our three 2016 "Words to Be Heard" Scholarship winners.
This year's applicants caught the attention of our judges with their creativity and emotional entries. The judges noted each submission's personal touch, and applauded the impact each project has when warning other teens against the dangers of drinking and driving and texting and driving.
Thank you to all our applicants. It was clear that those students dedicated a great deal of time and effort in creating their submissions, and that hard work did not go unnoticed.
Congratulations to each of our scholarship winners. Click on the winners' names to learn more about our winners and view each of their projects.
