To enter, the student must submit an essay about one of these subjects:

  • What my aspiration for my generation is.
  • How I am preparing for my future.
  • How my education plans will affect my community.
  • What a middle school student should do in high school to prepare for college.

The deadline for submissions is May 31. For more information, visit www.kheaa.com/website/contest/intro. Photos from the winning school will be used in KHEAA publications and on KHEAA websites.
