Burg Simpson would like to thank everyone who took the time to submit an essay. Scholarship recipients will be notified on or around February 24th.
One scholarship of $2,500 and nine scholarships of $1,000 each will be awarded to graduating seniors to attend the college of their choice. All 10 winners, their families, and a teacher of their choice will be invited to a dinner held in their honor. Winners will also appear at center court during half-time of the Colorado State Boys Basketball Championship game at the Coors Event Center in Boulder, Colorado on March 11, 2017.
At Burg Simpson, we recognize the importance of access to a good education. In 2012, we launched our annual Scholarship Competition, encouraging seniors from across the state to write a 1,500 word essay about the importance of the civil jury system as the guardian of American rights and liberties. The competition is an exciting and important project in which we intend to participate in for many years to come.
