I am proud to be associated with the Legion Riders from Post #86 in Susquehanna. We do a lot of great work and help as many people as possible. There is a scholarship they have that I wanted to share.

Every year, they have a Fallen Heroes Run. And every year, they offer a $500 scholarship for designing the t-shirt for the event. it is open to junior and senior high school students throughout Susquehanna County. The cool thing is the talent these kids display. Some adults get put to shame by the artwork. We are all very proud to wear the designs.

They are still looking for a winner! If you know a student who is artistically gifted and is planning on either going to college or into the service, have them enter.  The shirts designed by the winners are always fantastic!

Here's the info:

Eligibility: This contest is open to any junior or senior who intends to pursue a higher education or enter the armed services after graduation.
The Award: The scholarship amount is set at $500, and only one will be awarded each year.
Requirements: The design must honor servicemen and women of the past, present and future and should embrace a patriotic sentiment. The design must be in a format that can be easily duplicated and reproduced as a t-shirt. In addition the design must incorporate the following information: 8th Annual Fallen Heroes Run; American Legion Riders; Chapter 86; Susquehanna, PA and include a slogan that captures the essence of this event, for example last year the phrase was “Ride to Remember”
