Northshire Bookstore is pleased to announce a new college scholarship award - The Open Mind Scholarship.
The Open Mind Scholarship honors the diversity of thought, feelings, information and perspectives found in books, as well as the power of books to change people’s lives.
Each year Northshire Bookstore will award four college-bound high school seniors scholarships to help pay for college. We are committing $2,000. Two Vermonters, Tony Whaling and Brian Barefoot, liked the idea so much that they have committed an extra $9,000 for Vermont students.
The breakdown will be as follows:
For New York students
For Vermont students
- $5,000 for 1st prize
- $3,000 for 2nd prize
- $2,000 for 3rd prize
To enter the contest, students need to write up to one page on how a book has exposed them to something new and how it has impacted their life. Submissions are due by 3/31/2018. To enter, email the submission to firstname.lastname@example.org.
