About the event
Each year since 2019, Esther Productions Inc. has presented a unique scholarship essay contest that invites young ladies aged 13 through 18 to submit essays that tell their stories about growing up without their fathers and building their resilience as they face that challenge. A group of accomplished artists, educators, clinicians, business and civic leaders serve as judges. Cash prizes, ranging from $1500 to $500, are given to the top winners during the Discovery Summit and Scholarship Awards Ceremony.
This year, the event is presented in cooperation with The Black Student Fund. Anita Josey-Herring, chief judge of the Superior Court of the District of Columbia, will provide remarks and present awards to the top scholarship winners and honorable mentions. The summit will included mini-workshop presentations by television actor Addison Switzer, self-care guru Jennifer Okosun and therapist Dr. Tracie Robinson; they will focus on providing greater understanding of the impact of father absence while developing resilence and personal power.
Join us for an inspiring and fun-filled day. Light refreshments will be served. REGISTER NOW.
