A Josephine County High School Senior can win a $250 scholarship and three tickets to the Annual Lincoln Day Dinner by entering the first Josephine County Republican Party “High School Lincoln Essay Competition”.
Featuring keynote speaker David Rufful of the Young Cons, the dinner will be held Friday Night, February 7th, 2014 at the Taprock Event Center in Grants Pass, Oregon.
Interested students may submit essays of 1,000 or fewer words about political leadership, inspired by the theme: “Abraham Lincoln chose to do what was right, rather than what was expedient.” Essays will be judged on writing quality, persuasiveness, historical accuracy and an understanding of the political courage of Abraham Lincoln.
Our goal is to inspire and empower the next generation of Republican leaders by facilitating critical thinking about political issues, contributing to their education and inviting them to take part in one of Josephine County Republican Party’s most cherished traditions.
All essayists must be enrolled in public or private school, or home schooled, and must be residents of Josephine County. Essays must be submitted via e-mail attachment to Keith Trahern at firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, January 10th, 2014 at 5 p.m. or mailed to Josephine County Republican Party, 1867 Williams Hwy, Suite 258, Grants Pass, OR 97527, and postmarked by January 10th.
