Last week WCA awarded The WCA Inspire Scholarship to two bright Florida high school students. WCA provided a unique platform for the students to avail the scholarship for education. The WCA Inspire Scholarship idea was conceived to help the talented students, irrespective of their college or university, to pursue an education while having a focus on improving the environment.
The procedure to compete for the scholarship was to prove your mettle through an essay. Students were required to write an essay on any on the topic regarding an environmental issue, which their community is facing. It was also required to include viable solutions to combat the issues. The length of the essay to be submitted was required to be between 500 to 1000 words. A dozen of students from different Florida high schools submitted their essay, out of which, WCA experts chose the top two, which highlighted the issue and the solutions in a clear and efficient manner.
