The Heinrich Team Scholarship Program: 2023 Poetry Contest
The Heinrich Team not only enjoys helping clients find the perfect home within the Monterey Peninsula’s picturesque communities, but also promoting and supporting education within the area. In this vein, The Heinrich Team has started a new scholarship program as a way to financially assist students as they advance in life.
The inaugural poetry contest took place in April in observation of National Poetry Month and included three age divisions: elementary students (grades 3-5); middle school students (grades 6-8); and high school students (grades 9-12). Entrants were asked to submit one copy of their original poem (and only one poem per entrant) and their contact information by April 25.
The Heinrich Team selected two winners from the elementary school division, and one winner from the middle school and high school divisions. Elementary and middle school winners received $250 Visa gift cards, and the high school winner received a $1,000 scholarship to go toward a college or trade school of their choice. Honorable mentions received a $25 Visa gift card, a leather journal and treats.
