Up to four $1000 scholarships will be awarded to winners of the Father Leopold Moczygemba Foundation's Silesian-Polish Texans Essay Contest. Any high school senior in Texas may enter before the deadline of April 15. Essays must focus on one person of Silesian-Polish descent who lived in Texas in the 1800s or 1900s. Students must compose an interesting and original paper about that person, including biographical information, personality traits, career, and milestones, noting any activities connected to ethnicity, for example, memberships in a parish or organization. Students must also note if the subject's home town in Texas is connected to a group of Silesian immigrants, such as the Panna Maria group or the Bandera group, or others, reflecting on any Polish traditions, language, or sayings of the person, if possible. The entry must be between four and six hundred words and double-spaced. At least four references must be listed, and at least one reference must a non-internet source. Additionally, a living Silesian Texan must be interviewed for additional details about the subject. Use of proper English, grammar, punctuation and spelling are requirements for the essay. Students should carefully read all contest requirements by downloading the flyer at where mailing instructions are specified.
