Essay Contest For High School Students

The Nyquist Foundation is offering high school students in grades 9-12 from Culbertson and Froid a new essay contest opportunity related to the Bakken oil boom.
Students should submit essays to the Nyquist Foundation by delivering them to the Culbertson or Froid libraries.
Students should use the following information when writing their essays.
In rural towns throughout the U.S., such as Froid and Culbertson, young people leave after high school or college, and may never return. Despite the oil boom, this continues. Why do you think this is so? Do you plan to stay in the area as an adult or plan to leave? Why? If you are leaving, what would induce you to stay?
Essays should be approximately two pages in length, 500 to 1000 words, and double-spaced. Essays should begin with an introduction, contain body paragraphs and a conclusion. The student’s name, date and town should be in the upper right hand corner.
Sources should be cited if not the writer’s.
The deadline is Dec. 2 at the libraries in Culbertson and Froid.
Two prizes will be awarded in each town; a $250 first prize and $150 second prize.
Winning essays will be submitted for publication in The Searchlight.
