About the Scholarship

The contest was created to serve high school students living in the U.S.A. Last year we created a contest to students throughout the U.S. The Cancer Unwrapped Teen Writing Contest invites high school students to submit essays about their experience with cancer for the opportunity to win cash prizes. The contest started in the year 2006, and it received more than 4,000 submissions and handed out over $150,000 in prize money. The scholarship opportunity is open to students studying in grades 9-12 living in the United States.
