I won the “Daughters of the American Revolution” scholarship, and I feel honored. Basically, the scholarship looks for a student who demonstrates dependability, service, leadership, and patriotism. After applying for it, which was answering a couple of questions, writing an essay, and providing a resume, I was chosen to represent Homestead at the next level. At this “next level”, I had to complete a timed essay by answering a prompt they gave me and sending it into the DAR. Then, my essay would be in competition with all of the other essays from students representing other high schools in Fort Wayne. Because of this, I went to a ceremony at the ACPL downtown to give a speech and represent Homestead. I did not win at the next level, but it was an amazing experience. I found out about it from the scholarship listings on Homestead’s webpage. Winning the award makes me feel truly honored.
