    The AFL-CIO has announced their 2019 Scholarship Essay Contest!

    The Essay Contest provides an opportunity for high school and post-secondary students to learn about the Labor Movement’s important contributions to the social, economic, and political development of our county.  It also reminds students – the next generation of workers – about the importance of protecting the Labor Movement’s gains, for their own wellbeing in current and future workplaces.
     
    Awards are offered to students in two categories: Graduating High School Seniors (class of 2019) and All Post-Secondary Students. The award amounts are: First Place - $2,000, Second Place - $1,000, Third Place - $500.
     
    The essay topics for each category are as follows:
     
    Category I – Graduating High School Seniors:
    How does a strong union affect my family and me?
     
    Category II – Students Attending an Accredited, Post-Secondary Institution:
    How do judicial decisions impact the ability of unions to organize and collectively bargain?

     
    Click here to find the scholarship application. All submissions must be postmarked by February 15, 2019.  Essays will be judged in March, and awards will be made in April 2019. Visit the PA AFL-CIO's website and learn more about this scholarship opportunity here: paaflcio.org.
