2021 Wright Gray Scholarship Essay Contest

In March, we commemorated a year unlike any the world has known before. With the perspective of time, we have the opportunity to reflect on the many ways the COVID-19 pandemic has changed our lives.

As we all consider the past year, Wright Gray would like to invite high school seniors to contribute their voices to a collective conversation in our annual scholarship essay contest: Reflections on the Pandemic.

We will be awarding 4 deserving seniors scholarships of $500 each to help with college funds and textbook purchases.

** You must be a high school senior graduating from a school located in Orleans Parish and attending a college full-time in the fall.

Students should choose one of the essay topics below:

  • How has life changed for you, and what did you learn about yourself during the pandemic?

  • What strategies did you use to cope during the pandemic, and how do you think it will help you with future challenges? 

  • What do you hope society will take away from our universal experience of the pandemic?

Beginning March 30 through May 7, we will be accepting 250-word essays from graduating seniors or students.
