The Maryland School Counselor Association is offering a $500 scholarship to two high school seniors for the best essay written in recognition of a school counselor (elementary, middle or high school) who has helped the candidate in some significant way. In a 300 - 500 word essay, the candidates should give specific examples of how the counselor helped make a difference in the candidate's life.
The applicants and the school counselors who is the subject of the chosen essay will be invited to attend the MSCA School Counselor Recognition Gala being held on February 8, 2019. Excerpts of the essay submitted may be read at the Gala. An application will be given priority if the school counselor who is the subject of the candidate's essay is a current MSCA member.
