The Stim Bullitt Civic Courage Scholarship asks students to write an essay about an individual or group of individuals from Washington state who demonstrated civic courage on an issue of importance to the community at great personal, political or professional risk.
Distinguished judges will review the entries and award the first-place winner with a $5,000 prize. Two runners-up will win $2,500 each. The top three essays will also be added to the collection in the Hugh and Jane Ferguson Seattle Room at The Seattle Public Library.
The deadline for this contest is March 15. To learn more about the eligibility requirements and how to enter, visit the scholarship page at: https://supportspl.org/what-we-do/scholarship/.
