                            GERMAN-AMERICAN HALL of FAME ANNOUNCES 2014



Separate competitions for high school and

college students to result in cash prizes


                The German-American Hall of Fame (GAMHOF) Board of Trustees is pleased to announce an exciting initiative, the 2014 GAMHOF Student Scholarship Essay Contest.


                With separate competitions for college and high school students, the essay contest will offer cash awards totaling $3,500 for the winning students in 2014. The two First prize winners will take home $1,000, with runners-up winning $500 each, and Third place winners earning $250 each.


                The mission of GAMHOF is to highlight the contributions of outstanding Americans of German ancestry, underscoring the tremendous positive impact of America's largest immigrant group. Such notable Americans as President Eisenhower, Babe Ruth and Albert Einstein have been inducted into the Hall of Fame.


                Founder and Chairman William Hetzler said that "GAMHOF is pleased to announce this second essay competition, encouraging students to look into the  contributions of outstanding German immigrants and German-Americans in one of our 50 states, and then to write about them. We expect to see some fine research and writing that will bring alive the amazing impact of this group of over 70 million Americans."


                This year's student essay contest asks each applicant to write an essay, in 750 words or less, about the impact of German immigrants and German-Americans on one of the 50 US states.  Applicants do not have to write about their own home states.


                To view and access the application for the GAMHOF Student Scholarship Essay Contest, visit www.gamhof.org. The deadline for all applications is July 31, 2014.


Students who might be interested in applying and writing an essay about the impact of German immigrants and German-Americans on one of our US states can access the application and other information on the website.
