Students of Integrity Scholarship Competition

The Students of Integrity is an essay-based competition that honors high school students from the BBB’s five county service area who personify ethics through leadership, community service and actions. Recognizing that significant adults in a student’s life contribute to their formation of personal ethics and educational success, parents and selected teachers of the essay award winners are also honored.

About BBB's Scholarship Competion 

Each high school (in BBB's five county service area) may nominate ONE student applicant approved by the school's counselor. Only one application per school will be accepted. The designated student must be a junior or senior during the school year. Past scholarship winners are not eligible.  Applications are juged on leadership, community service, and a personal essay. 

The student will need to prepare an essay of up to 500 words about an ethical dilemma relating to business, politics, their personal life, or community using specific examples of how the matter affects the student and others, and how to apply ethical values to resolve the issue. 

Students are encouraged to review the UncommonSense Decleration. UncommonSense is a model leadership ethics guide, and more broadly, a character manifesto with application to ass of life's interatactions.
