Burg Simpson would like to thank everyone who took the time to submit an essay, and we congratulate our winners. The winning entries were of an extremely high standard.
We are delighted to announce the winners of this year’s competition:
At Burg Simpson, we recognize the importance of access to a good education. In 2012, we launched our annual High School Scholarship Competition. We encouraged 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.
We were overwhelmed by the response and it was our privilege to award ten $1,000 scholarships to the winners at a special reception for the students, their families, and their teachers. The Burg Simpson High School Scholarship Competition is an exciting and important project in which we intend to participate for many years to come.
