The Competition

The 2017 Heritage Scholarship Competitions will be held November 18-19, 2016 and January 22-23, 2017 in Longview, TX. Students must be present to compete.  While we understand the dates may not work out for everyone, for consistency of the competition these are the only dates students will be allowed to compete. 

A $300 Heritage Travel Grant is available for students who attend the Heritage Scholarship Competition. This can be in addition to the Travel Grant used for a separate visit to LETU. Travel Grants are applied to the student's account pending fall 2017 enrollment.

Essay and Video: Before the competition, you will be required to upload an essay and short video as a response to a prompt.
