Essay and Speech Contests for Juniors and Seniors

Describe a counselor, teacher, or coach who has had the greatest influence on your decision to attend college. How has this individual impacted your future? What will you do in college or beyond that will make a difference in your community?

WLC Juniors and Seniors are invited to write a 500 word essay for the annual NEACAC essay contest for all NEACAC- member high schools.  There will be six winners – one from each of the New England States – who will each be awarded a $1000 Scholarship. The application for the Essay Contest for 2017 will open on February 1, 2017 and be available through April 8, 2017.

More information and the contest application will be found online at:  http://www.neacac.org/essay-contest-information-application

Attention Seniors:
As a high school senior, you are currently experiencing the college planning and application process. The keynote address should be about this experience. Share your strategies, what worked, and what you might have done differently. Is there anything you didn’t expect? What did you learn that a current high school junior should know? Remember that your insight will help the junior class prepare for what’s down the road. Your speech may be funny, interesting or informative…hopefully a little bit of all three! Please refrain from describing a step-by-step to-do list in your speech. Your goal is to capture the attention and interest of your listeners with stories and energy! 
Submit a 3-5 minute speech for our DC Speech Contest! By submitting a 3-5 minute speech about your path to college and navigating the college admissions process, you, too, can win a $1,000 scholarship and have the opportunity to give our keynote address and share the stage with VIPS like New Hampshire’s governor, the PSU president, and even the CEO of NHHEAF! 
Due Date: Friday, February 10th at 5 pm
