Polish Heritage Association of Michigan City scholarship and essay contest


The Polish Heritage Association of Michigan City is offering its fourth annual scholarship/essay contest, "Polish Heritage and What It Means to Me". As in the three previous years, the contest is open to any graduating senior in Northwest Indiana, regardless of ethnic background. The requirement for college admission has been eliminated, however,  since some students do not go directly to college, and the prize money has increased.

We invite all qualified students to compete for one of the $1000 and $500 prizes. More importantly, the contest is an opportunity to hone their thinking and writing skills, to engage in a friendly competition with their peers and to learn about the culture and history that constitute Polish heritage. For some it may be a journey of self-discovery.

Entries for this scholarship are due by May 3, 2017 and more information can be picked up the LCHS Guidance office.
