Important contest update: DEADLINE EXTENDED TO JANUARY 24 AT 5:00PM

On January 20th, an unforeseen technical issue caused the Stop the Hate essay submission portal to crash multiple times. We received several emails and phone calls to alert us that the portal was not working and we want to thank everyone who reached out. There may be other students who tried to submit and couldn’t, but didn’t contact us. It is our hope that we can reach every student who wanted to submit an essay and let them know they still can.

We have re-opened the portal and extended the deadline. 11th and 12th grade students may submit Stop the Hate essays through Friday, January 24, 2020 at 5:00 p.m.

​Please help spread the word that the deadline has been extended and 11th and 12th grade students can still submit their essays for the Stop the Hate scholarship contest.
