AFA recently awarded $34,500 to 36 winners of our Teens for Alzheimer's Awareness Scholarship Essay Contest, the largest single-year total since the program's inception. Each of the winners wrote moving essays about how Alzheimer's affected them.
The annual program invites high school seniors to share their personal experiences with Alzheimer's disease and the impact it has had on their lives. Nearly 3,000 students participated in the 2019 contest.
Congratulations to the winners and thank you to all the students who entered the competition!
