Friends of Scotchman Peaks Wilderness 2019 high school essay contest is open.

The program is an annual chance for seniors in Libby, Troy, Thompson Falls and Noxon, Montana; and Clark Fork, Sandpoint and Priest River, Idaho, to win a cash prize for the best essay written on the theme ďA memorable wilderness experience.Ē

This may be a story of the author or a story related to the author by a friend or relative. The event may have happened in any wild place, and must show non-motorized activities such as hiking, camping, hunting, fishing, berry picking, or horseback riding.

Entries and application forms may be sent by email to sandy@scotchmanpeaks.org or via U.S. mail to: Scholarships, P.O. Box 2016, Sandpoint, ID 83864.

Entries should be between 500 and 750 words, double spaced, ideally in Microsoft Word or a clean hard copy that can be scanned.

Entrants should also send a current, high-resolution picture of themselves with their entry. Pictures taken in wild places are better.

Prizes of $500 will be given to the best essay over all, as well as the best essay from Sanders and Lincoln Counties, Montana, and Bonner County, Idaho, not including best overall.

This contest has no minimum GPA, nor does it require any plans for higher education. The prizes are paid directly to the winning students upon graduation, and may be used as they see fit.

Entry forms may be downloaded at bit.ly//2019FSPWScholarship. Essays must be received by April 15, 2019.
