I'm currently in the process of writing the rules and guidelines for submissions and assembling a panel of judges . Thus far, I've recruited a private University English professor, a public high school history teacher and author, and a military historian/author who also works as a museum curator. I will also be serving as one of the judges and I am awaiting the reply of one more person.
The objective of the scholarship program is to acquaint young people with the history of the War Between the States during the Sesquicentennial of the conflict. A more detailed and official announcement will be made some time before year's end.
