Chasing Sunsets was formed to help stop the stigma surrounding mental health. I believe this starts with the next generation.
We are very proud to announce the Chasing Sunsets Scholarship. We are blessed to be able to award 1 student from each of the 5 schools in Randolph County a $500 scholarship this year. This scholarship will be awarded to a senior who is planning on furthering their education at either a university or trade school. The scholarship will be paid directly to the scholarship winners' school of admittance.
An application must be completed with a short essay written by the applicant on mental health. The essay must include at least one of the following topics: How does mental health affect you and your peers? How does mental health affect the community? Why is discussing mental health to important? How can someone in your community help encourage others to seek help? How can we stop the stigma on mental health?
The essay winners will not necessarily be chosen because they are the best grammatically; rather, the ones chosen will likely be those that are written with the most honest, heartfelt explanation of how mental health impacts those around us.
Applications can be found outside of Mrs. Adams' office.
Deadline: April 1, 2024
