The Illinois REALTORS® Bicentennial Task Force is launching its “Home is Where the Heart Is” essay contest. Twenty-three high school students across Illinois have a chance to win a monetary scholarship and be a part of the historic 200th birthday of the State of Illinois.

Students are asked to submit a minimum of 500 words (maximum 700 words) on what this theme means to them. All essays will be judged based on adherence to this theme, originality, creativity, grammar, punctuation, and spelling. The contest is open to Illinois high school students in grades 9 through 12 attending public, private, or home schools.

The contest submission deadline is Feb. 15, 2018. In addition to the monetary award, scholarship winners will also receive statewide recognition from Illinois REALTORS® and the State of Illinois Bicentennial Commission.
