“Think For Yourself” High School Essay Contest

April 28, 2023

“Think For Yourself” High School Essay Contest
By: Let’s Grow
Enter before April 30th
For 11th and 12th Grade Students


Note: This is not a Cola City hosted event

Every year, Let Grow asks high school students to think about the importance of free speech, curiosity, and open-mindedness in their everyday lives. We award a $5,000 scholarship to the Grand Prize Winner, and $1,000 each to three Runners-Up. Students submit 600-800 word essays about their personal experiences with these ideas. We like real-life stories of growth and change. Since launching in 2018 we have received over 25,000 entries and awarded $40,000 in college scholarships. The winners’ essays have been published in USA Today, The New York Post, The New York Daily News, The San Francisco Chronicle, The New Jersey Ledger, Quilette, and EdWeek.
