18 scholarships will be awarded to Virginia high school juniors and seniors submitting outstanding analytical essays on any aspect--positive or negative--of the career, character, or legacy of General Robert E. Lee and/or General "Stonewall" Jackson.
The Foundation will award one $2,000 scholarship and one $1,000 scholarship to students whose essays are judged to be the best in each of Virginia's eight public high school regions.
In addition, the Foundation will award one $2,000 scholarship and one $1,000 scholarship to private school or home-schooled students whose essays are judged to be the best from this sector.
An additional award of $8,000 will go to the public school, private school, or home-schooled student who authors the essay judged to be the best in the state. This student will receive a total award of $10,000.
A $1,000 award will be given to a school in each of the nine judging sectors in the name of the high school teacher or advisor who sponsors the most participating students in that sector.
