After navigating through numerous applications, choosing 10 finalists, and debating heartily, our Seattle law office is ready to name the TWO students who will walk away with $500 each for post-secondary educational expenses.
At our law firm, we deal every day with clients who have had something bad “mark” their lives. We wanted our Make Your Mark Scholarship to focus on overcoming adversity: what you can do to leave a positive impact on people. This year, we offered two prizes, one for a Washington State student, and one for another college-bound student from elsewhere in the United States. The winners are:
- Eden G. from Seattle, WA!
- Rea Y. from Makanda, IL!
Congratulations, you two! We were impressed with your goals and the way you showed your passion through your writing. Everyone else, you can meet them through their essays on our previous winners page. We think you’ll agree that these young people are going places, and they’ll be leaving the right impressions in their wake! Congratulations, winners!
Well done, finalists; and thank you to everyone who submitted an application. We were delighted with the overall response, and by many individual entries we received. We encourage you to try again next year, and follow our blog and Facebook page for other opportunities.
