THINK BEFORE YOU MOVE
Every year, the Think Before You Move Scholarship recognizes four outstanding high school students in the Athens-Clarke County area. A $1000 scholarship is awarded to students who demonstrate exceptional persuasive writing skills, while meeting academic and community service requirements. Each year, winners will present their winning essay at the conference. The Think Before You Move Scholarship encourages writing and public speaking while challenging youth to explore important topics such as education reform and community awareness.
Your essay should (1) define community stewardship and describe what it means to you and the people in your community that you care most about, (2) identify a community steward that you admire and respect, (3) describe the type of person who is able to be a community steward, and (4) describe how a community steward could promote community healing and wellness, cultivate compassion, and empower others.
