2021 Wright Gray Scholarship Essay Contest

In March, we commemorated a year unlike any the world has known before. With the perspective of time, we have the opportunity to reflect on the many ways the COVID-19 pandemic has changed our lives.

As we all consider the past year, Wright Gray would like to invite high school seniors to contribute their voices to a collective conversation in our annual scholarship essay contest: Reflections on the Pandemic.

We will be awarding 4 deserving seniors scholarships of $500 each to help with college funds and textbook purchases.

** You must be a high school senior graduating from a school located in Orleans Parish and attending a college full-time in the fall.

Students should choose one of the essay topics below:

  • How has life changed for you, and what did you learn about yourself during the pandemic?

  • What strategies did you use to cope during the pandemic, and how do you think it will help you with future challenges?

  • What do you hope society will take away from our universal experience of the pandemic?

Beginning March 30 through May 7, we will be accepting 250-word essays from graduating seniors or students.

Essays can be submitted here: idrissa@wpglawfirm.com

Global Civil Rights leader, Martin Luther King, Jr. once said, “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, what are you doing for others?”

This question resonates with every attorney and support staff at the Wright Gray Personal Injury Law Firm.

We believe our duties to our community go beyond our legal services. That’s why we provide assistance to people in our community through giving events, activities, and contributions.

“Our scholarship was established to reward outstanding high school seniors for their past effort and to support their future academic endeavors during unprecedented times.”
