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.
Describe how your community (local, state, nation, and/or global) can demonstrate “community resilience” in 2021. Your essay should (1) define community resilience and describe what it means to you and the people in your community, (2) identify a resilient person and/or community that you admire and respect, and (3) describe how you will contribute to building a resilient community around you that will promote community healing, wellness, compassion, and empowerment in the era of COVID-19.
