The Missouri Game Association, a statewide professional association of the Missouri casino industry, is inviting high school seniors to participate in the 28th Project 21 Scholarship Contest. A first-place scholarship of $2,500 and three second-place scholarships will be awarded. The Project 21 Scholarship Program encourages students to learn about the illegality, risks, and consequences of underage gambling and to educate their peers.
Students should write and publish an essay or original article in the school newspaper or produce a poster or video, and articles, posters or videos should focus on the problems and ramifications of underage gambling. Entries must be presented or displayed at the student’s high school for at least a week from December 1, 2023 to February 15, 2024, and entries will be judged on their originality, content, style, and educational value. 바카라
“We want students to know that it is illegal for anyone under the age of 21 to gamble at a Missouri casino,” said Mike Winter, executive director of the Missouri Game Association. “We also want students to know about the risks and consequences of teenagers participating in other types of underage gambling.”
All high school seniors in Missouri, including if their parents are casino employees, are eligible for Project 21 scholarships, even if their parents are not Missouri Game Association executives or Project 21 executives. High school seniors who employ part-time (less than 32 hours per week) employed at casinos in Missouri are also eligible.
