2020 LINCOLN HERITAGE COUNCIL
“WORDS TO LIVE BY” CONTEST
Extended Deadline: August 17, 2020
Scouts, grades K-12, are encouraged to participate in the Lincoln Heritage Council’s first ever multi-media contest. Scouts will be divided into age divisions and their work will be judged by a select panel of board members and volunteers.
In addition to the contest itself, the Scout’s work has a chance to be showcased throughout the Council via social media, e-blasts, displays and mailers!
Each age division will have one winner. Winners from grades K-8 will receive a full scholarship to a 2021 Lincoln Heritage Council Day Camp, Resident Camp, or Summer Camp. The winner from the 9-12 grade essay contest will receive a $1,000 College Scholarship. All contest participants with their work submitted prior to the August 17, 2020 deadline will receive a 2020 “Words to Live By” patch.
Participating Scouts must be registered with the Lincoln Heritage Council, BSA.
This year has been a unique and challenging time for everyone due to the Covid-19 crisis.
The Scout motto is “Be Prepared”.
