The German-American Hall of Fame (GAMHOF) is pleased to announce the 2018 Student Scholarship Essay Contest. The mission of the German-American Hall of Fame is to highlight the contributions of outstanding Americans of German ancestry, underscoring the tremendous positive impact of America's largest immigrant group.

Applicants are asked to write an essay, in 750 words or less, about the impact of an athlete of German descent in the United States. The athlete can be male or female, immigrant or not. But the athlete's primary impact should be in the United States.

With separate competitions for college and high school students, the essay contest will offer cash awards totaling $3,500 for the winning students in 2018. The two first prize winners will each take home $1,000, with runners-up winning $500 each, and third place winners earning $250 prizes. Students who will have graduated high school prior to July 31, 2018 should enter the college competition. Student who have completed their Bachelor's/college degrees are not eligible for this competition.
