Scholarship Essay Contest - 2014

We invite you to participate in our annual high school scholarship contest! One deserving high school senior will receive a scholarship funded by CoVa to go toward furthering his/her education. The winning essay will be published in a future issue this year. Entries will be accepted through March 15--submit yours below.

If you have any questions, please contact Web Marketing and Promotions Manager, My Nguyen at

The prompt: 

In 500 words or less, tell us how you define the "Coastal Virginia lifestyle" that we are so lucky to enjoy living in this region. What kind of sights, smells, sensations and memories does it conjure for you? Tell us about experiences you've shared with your loved ones here, or perhaps dreams and plans you have for the future. We want to know--what makes Coastal Virginia difficult to leave, yet easy to return to? 


The Submission date for this contest has past.
