Annual Dorothy James & Marie Whitaker Scholarship Essay Contest

  • This event has passed.

Named in honor of two of our founders, this annual award offers financial support to any Delaware County high school junior or senior interested in pursuing continuing education – college/university, trade school, certificate program, or similar.

To be eligible, students watch Media Fellowship House’s video entitled, “Words of the Heart” which tells the story of Dorothy James, her great-grandfather, Thomas Garrett as well as the founding of Media Fellowship House. Once finished with the video, the students will then write a 500-1000 word essay expressing their feelings about the video and what they would do to help improve our community.

Six scholarships are awarded, ranging from $250-$1,500.

An email went out to all registered participants at 8:45am on Saturday from amy@mediafellowshiphouse.org. Please check your inbox for the full instructions on how to take part in the contest today, Saturday, April 23rd. Good luck!
