Recognizing people in our community who perform selfless acts.

The Bryan J. Miller Essay Contest was created to recognize members of our community who perform selfless acts for others with no thought or desire for personal gain.

This essay contest aims to give any high school sophomore
in the state of Utah the opportunity to recognize someone
who has impacted their life and/or the lives of others in 250 to 500 words.

This is not only a great way for these sophomores to honor
someone who has affected them, but the five winners of this
essay contest, chosen by an esteemed panel of judges, will
receive a $1,500 college scholarship donated by the Larry H. and Gail Miller Family Foundation. The scholarship money is then
deposited into a Mountain America Credit Union savings
account which will accrue 10% interest each year until the
student graduates. The student can then use this scholarship
to continue their education in any field of study.

To nominate your hero, please submit your essay before
Feb 12, 2017.
