We look forward to your participation!

Providing $1,000 to help college students meet the rising costs of higher education

The attorneys of Zavodnick, Zavodnick & Lasky, LLC understand the financial strains that can accompany obtaining a college degree.  For this reason, our firm is pleased to offer a $1,000 college scholarship to the winner of our bi-annual essay contest. Details regarding the contest and the applications procedure can be found below.

The Spring 2018 essay contest

In order to participate, applicants must be currently enrolled or planning to enroll in an accredited United States college or university by Fall 2018. Law students are also encouraged to apply. Participants should write a 500-600 word essay responding to the following question:

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that close to half of professional carpenters and plumbers have suffered some degree of hearing loss from repeated loud banging and drilling.  Companies who employ workers in such high-risk environments are required to provide adequate protective gear for employees who are regularly exposed to loud noises. However, many times the protective gear is worn, damaged, or defective and does not sufficiently protect from hearing loss. What do you think companies can do in order to better protect workers from hearing loss? What degree do you believe employees should go to in order to protect themselves from hearing loss?

Responses will be evaluated based upon the following criteria:

  • The quality of the writing
  • Originality
  • The thoughtfulness of the response
  • The applicant’s demonstrated potential for success in their chosen field of study

How to apply

Applicants should submit their responses as an attachment to zzlscholarship@gmail.com by 6/30/2018 at 9AM PST. In the body of their email, applicants should include:

  • Their full name and phone number
  • The name of the educational institution they are attending or plan to attend
  • Their current or proposed course of study
  • Contact information for their parent or guardian, if the applicant is under 18-years-old.
