Keller Law Offices is proud to announce the 4th year of its Annual Scholarship for Higher Education. We understand that there are a lot of outstanding young people who, without financial assistance, would not be able to go to college. To help open the door to the world of higher education, Keller Law Offices is offering a $1,000 scholarship to the student who submits the strongest essay focusing on the given topic.
Write an essay on the following topic:
Describe an incident or write a fictional story of how someone got falsely accused of a crime and how they handled it. Feel free to leave an open ending but be sure to include enough details to make it interesting. Your story should include the alleged crime, the penalty the defendant would face in your state if convicted, and an anecdote of how they dealt with the situation.
Please follow these guidelines:
Essays submitted as GoogleDoc Files, private blog posts, etc. will not be considered.
Students who give us a social-media shoutout will be credited with one bonus point per social-media channel. The shoutout should include a link to the kellerlaw.com website and a tag (link) to our respective Social Media Account. Please use the hashtag #kellerlawscholarship2019 so we can find your account easier.
This is how a post should look like:
This is not a requirement and students without social media access will still be considered. Multiple shoutouts within the same social media channel are appreciated but will not result in additional points. We will not credit points for channels on which we are not active. Please find a list of our Social Media accounts below.
