Applicants must write a 200-300 word essay on the topic “Why I am applying for the Horsky Scholarship and what I hope to accomplish with my college education.” Essays must be typewritten and double spaced or legibly handwritten. Applicants must submit three (3) letters of recommendation from responsible persons (not including family members) who know the applicant well, including a letter from the principal, counselor, teacher or community leader and copies of secondary school transcripts.
