2020 Scholarship Theme: Becoming a Global Citizen

The 2020 Scholarship Theme is "Becoming a Global Citizen." Finding your place in the world is as much about human connection as it is introspection. What does global citizenship mean to you? How do you see it shaping your future? Are there steps that you think one can take to become a better global citizen?

We ask that students take this opportunity to think critically about what global citizenship means to them and demonstrate their responses creatively through their submissions.

Entries for artwork, photography and writing categories are judged on creativity, inventiveness, and how the expression of the idea relates to the theme.

Eligibility Details

The contest is open to students in grades 6 through 12 traveling on an ACIS tour from October 15, 2019 through October 14, 2020. All entries must be accompanied by a completed copy of the Sponsor Application Form and the Scholarship Entry Form. Entries will NOT be accepted without these two completed forms. Sponsors may submit entries from as many students as they wish. Each student may submit only one entry.
