”As a Long Beach personal injury attorney for over 30 years, I have represented young clients living with disabilities caused by auto accidents. I have seen how difficult it has been for them to move forward with their education. For this reason, I have established the annual Michael D. Waks Essay Contest to help disabled students reach their educational goals.”
Deadline for the 2016 contest is July 1, 2016.
Essays must be between 500 and 750 words.
Each essay must be the original work of the student submitting it.
Students are asked to write a story or essay on the following theme:
What educational challenges have you experienced due to your disability? How have you overcome these challenges in the past and how will you overcome them in the future? How has your disability influenced your choice of study and career?
Entries will be judged on the basis of content, readability and proper use of grammar and punctuation.
The winner will be announced at www.michaelwaks.com on July 31, 2016.
