Scholarship Value: $1,000
Awards Available: 1

Keller Law Offices is proud to announce the 4th year of its Annual Scholarship for Higher Education. We understand that there are a lot of outstanding young people who, without financial assistance, would not be able to go to college. To help open the door to the world of higher education, Keller Law Offices is offering a $1,000 scholarship to the student who submits the strongest essay focusing on the given topic.

Write an essay on the following topic:

Describe an incident or write a fictional story of how someone got falsely accused of a crime and how they handled it. Feel free to leave an open ending but be sure to include enough details to make it interesting. Your story should include the alleged crime, the penalty the defendant would face in your state if convicted, and an anecdote of how they dealt with the situation.

Format And Expected Standards

Please follow these guidelines:

A) The Essay has to be 1,500 words or less.

B) Post the essay to your blog. This can be a student blog on your university website or your own personal blog. If you do not have a blog, you can create one here for free: www.wordpress.com.

C) Include at least three "clickable" links to authoritative sources. At least one of these has to go to an article on Keller Law's blog. We added some below to get you started. Feel free to use different posts from our blog archive as well. Please note that the link to kellerlawoffices.com must be "clickable," meaning that it is not enough to simply cite to the post.
