National Conscience Month January 2021

$1,000 Scholarship will be Awarded to High School Senior in 2021

January, 2021 marks the 2nd Annual observance of National Conscience Month. Throughout the month Americans from all walks of life will be imagining new ways to celebrate the benefits of using their Conscience to guide their thoughts, words and deeds.
Here’s a special opportunity for high school seniors across the nation! You’re now invited to participate in a unique and creative way––by writing a short essay about using the Conscience. Think of a real situation in your life––or create an imaginary scenario––in which you allowed (or chose not to allow) your Conscience to guide your thoughts, words and actions. What were the results? Were there benefits? Or unexpected consequences? What did you learn from this experience?


One talented student will receive a $1,000. scholarship, awarded for an original essay of 1,000 words or less.
