• As a graduating senior, what advice would you give to your younger self (and other incoming freshmen) about navigating peer pressure and avoiding risk-taking behavior like drunk driving and texting while driving?
• Drunk driving accidents claim over 10,000 lives each year. Show or explain how drunk driving impacts your state, community and/or you, personally.
• If teens could be elected to the South Carolina House or Senate, what issues facing teens would be among your top legislative priorities? What laws would you want passed or changed and how?
Joye Law Firm is accepting scholarship application packages until May 1, 2022. The creative entry may be an essay, video, infographic, song, or poem. Find more information about the guidelines for applying for a scholarship and an online application form.
The scholarship selection committee will review the submissions with a focus on the creative entry, school activities, and each student's community involvement.
Each scholarship recipient will be notified at your respective school's end-of-year awards ceremony or by June 15th if the school does not have an awards ceremony.
Students are also required to nominate a favorite teacher who has inspired their creativity for a teacher prize. Inspiring teachers deserve recognition.
