Alderwoman Milele A. Coggs today launched the 6th Annual Freedom Scholarship Essay Contest for 2014, challenging students to put into words what the concept of “freedom” means to them and how they can combat and prevent prejudice, discrimination, and violence in the world today.

The deadline for the scholarship is Friday, August 15, 2014.

Alderwoman Coggs created the contest when she took office as a dedicated investment in opportunities for students in the 6th District.

Alderwoman Coggs said it is important to give young people the opportunity to express their reflections about freedom in a positive way that can benefit themselves and society. “The scholarship essay contest is a small way of reaffirming our belief and hope in our young people as they work to become the productive adults and leaders in Milwaukee,” she said.

Two $500 scholarships will be awarded and winning essays may be published, Alderwoman Coggs said.
