Each fall brings the exciting Luminari Award competition to middle and high schools in the Pittsburgh area. This year, we celebrate the eighth annual Luminari Award, a merit-based scholarship competition for students who are in grades 7 to 11 during the 2018-2019 academic year.
Two winners will be selected from the essay submissions. Each winner will receive a merit-based scholarship for an all-expense-paid admission to Luminari’s 2019 I Want to be an Ambassador! camp. The scholarship has a value of $1,200.
Download and print the LUMINARI AWARD APPLICATION. Write, by hand, a one-page essay describing your interest in the subject matter and ways in which you will benefit from the I Want to be an Ambassador! camp.
Sign the application and have your parent or legal guardian sign it as well.
Mail the completed application and essay to us by US Postal Service to Luminari, PO Box 81603, Pittsburgh, PA 15217 no later than January 30, 2019.
