Students win BHC scholarship essay contest

Congratulations to BHC students Alexander Wilcox of Moline, Logan Raschke of Geneseo and Allison M. Hand of Woodhull, the first, second and third place winners in the college’s 2016 Thomas Batell Scholarship Essay Contest.

Student essays had to address the contest theme, “How My Community College Has Changed My Life.”

The winners received $200 for first place, $100 for second place and $50 for third place.

Wilcox’s essay also becomes the college’s entry into the Illinois Community College Trustees Association’s 2017 Paul Simon Student Essay Contest. Entrants may use “How My Community College Has Changed My Life” or create their own title related to the theme. The ICCTA contest provides a $500 cash stipend for educational expenses during the Fall 2017 semester.
