PERRY HANNAH "LEADERSHIP LESSONS LEARNED" ESSAY CONTEST
The Perry Hannah "Leadership Lessons Learned" Essay Contest was created to inspire future leaders and encourage reading about our region's rich heritage. This special scholarship opportunity is coordinated by Peg Jonkhoff and Fred Hoisington, co-authors of the book Perry Hannah's Gifts, Then and Now, and members of the Community Foundation's Youth Advisory Council. High school juniors and seniors (in the 2018-2019 school year) in Antrim, Benzie, Grand Traverse, Kalkaska and Leelanau Counties are invited to apply. The first place award will be $1,000 and the recipient's winning essay will be published in the next edition of The Perry Hannah "Leadership Lessons Learned" book. $500 will be awarded for the 2nd place essay.
