Alliance Catholic Credit Union is currently running their 5th Annual Live It, Show It, Share It scholarship contest for students who will be attending a Catholic League high school in the 2021-2022 academic year. They are giving away a total of $20,000 in scholarships. Details about the contest can be found on the Alliance Catholic CU website (www.AllianceCatholic.com). (See flyer below).
This year, students are being asked to write and submit a modern-day parable that illustrates a universal truth or moral lesson. Students do not need to be members of Alliance Catholic Credit Union to enter the contest. This is something that any student can do and might make a great assignment for some of your teachers.
Ten (10) finalists will be selected and invited to participate in a short interview with a panel of leaders, including representatives from the Office of Catholic Schools, Alliance Catholic Credit Union, and one of the Catholic universities in our area. From there, one (1) Grand Prize winner will be selected to receive a $6,000 scholarship. There will be one (1) $4,500 scholarship for 2nd Place, one (1) $2,500 scholarship for 3rd Place and a $1,000 scholarship for the remaining seven (7) students.
This is a great opportunity for your school, students and families. The deadline for entries is Sunday, December 6, 2020. Finalists will be notified in early January. Interviews with the finalists will take place in mid-January. The ten (10) winners will be announced during Catholic Schools Week the first week of February.
