In order to apply for the CrossLites scholarship, you will write a reflective essay (400-600 words) based on one of Dr. Parker’s quotes. Although the contest is open to High School, College, and Graduate students, you will only be competing against other essays in your designated group (High School, Undergraduate, Graduate).

The judges will review each essay and pick the top 20 from each level to be posted on CrossLites.com. Applicants then have the opportunity to invite others to view their essay and to vote for them. The number of votes and shares make up a large portion of the applicant’s total score. When the voting period has ended, the winner will be chosen.
