Essay Scholarship Contest for Communications, Broadcasting, and Journalism Majors

Essay contestLooking for some scholarship money? Want a shot at $2,000?

If you are a full-time undergraduate iNRB student member (from an NRB Member School) who majors in communications, broadcasting, or journalism, you are eligible to compete in the Al Sanders Essay Scholarship Contest.

Sponsored by Focus on the Family on behalf of NRB Hall of Fame inductee Al Sanders, this essay scholarship contest invites students to write about issues and concerns regarding Christian broadcasting. For the 2014 competition, students are asked to exhibit forward thinking and write about a topic germane to the future of Christian media:

Look ahead. If you have children in 2025, how will THEY access and use media, and what kind of materials will content providers need to produce to engage these children with a Gospel/biblical message? (Please designate the age or ages of children that you are writing about.)

The scholarship offers a first place award of $2,000 and a second place award of $500. If present, the winners will be honored during the NRB 2014 International Christian Media Convention in Nashville, TN. In addition, the first place winner receives a complimentary registration to attend the four-day convention. Scholarship money will be sent directly to the student's school to be applied toward education expenses.

To enter, the essay, entry form, and iNRB Student Membership Application must be sent to NRB no later than Friday, December 20, 2013.
