The Drug Free Club is offering the opportunity for all DFCA members to win a scholarship. ONE MAIN AWARD of $2000.00 will be granted to the winner. THREE $1,000.00 awards will go to Runners-up, and SIX $500.00 awards will go to Finalists! Plus, certificates of participation, merit, honor or excellence (depending on contest placement) are awarded to all who enter! Due to school closures, we have made the decision to extend the dates of the Scholarship Contest by one month. The new dates are as follows:
5/1/20: Submit an essay in response to the following question, along with this completed application, to Julie Feinauer, SHDHS’s DFCA coordinator by midnight on 5/1/20. Hard copy or electronic submissions are acceptable. LATE ENTRIES WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED.
Essay should answer: What has your experience as a member of Drug Free Clubs of America taught you about yourself, your school, your family, your community and/or others you know?
Essays must be 1-page, typed, single-spaced, 1-inch margins, Arial font size no bigger than 12.
The DFCA member’s grade, school, and name must be at the top of the essay answer.
5/15/20: Qualifying essays will be read and judged by the school. Each school submits their top entry as their chapter’s “Semi-Finalist” to DFCA’s central office electronically by midnight on 5/15/20.
DFCA covers the member’s school and name (grade remains) & distributes them to judges.
6/1/20: Top 10 Finalists will be announced! (All finalists will receive one of the awards described above).
6/15/20: Winners will be announced on or before 6/15/20.
