Students had to support their responses with information, their knowledge of U.S. History and government, and cite a minimum of three other sources.

One of the primary goals of the American Heritage Scholarship is to teach students to think critically about issues affecting the United States and increasing their awareness of what it means to be an American.

A group of local educators, editors, community leaders, Superior Court Judges and representatives from the legal community judged the essays.
