Joe Foss Video and Essay Scholarship Contests

Who's Eligible: High school students

Grades, leadership activities, your award-winning science project... all of those things amount to squat in these scholarship contests. The prizes here go to the person who writes the best essay on "I'm Proud of My Country Because..." or someone who documents their time getting to know a veteran, or someone who can create a moving video on a related topic. Keep checking their website to find open contests, and get your writing or movie-producing juices flowing.
