El Paso Elks Lodge187 – Hosted a Writing Workshop for Veterans by Bill Sparks

Thank you to ENF for making this Workshop Possible for our Veterans!

What a moving experience observing and listening to Bill Sparks work his magic during his creative healing with words writing workshop for Veterans.  

Bill Sparks was very inspirational as he talked with the Veterans and he himself being a Veteran.   Best example of a veteran helping other veterans to deal with their own needs by the power of their own written words.

Americanism

Elks Lodges bring so much more to their communities than just a building, golf course or pool. They are places where neighbors come together, families share meals, and children grow up.

Elks invest in their communities through programs that help children grow up healthy and drug-free, meet the needs of today’s veterans, and improve the quality of life.

The Elks National Foundation will award 500 four-year scholarships to the highest-rated applicants in the 2022 competition.
Male and female students compete separately.
Ranging from $1,000 per year to $12,500 per year, Most Valuable Student scholarships are for students pursuing a four-year degree, on a full-time basis (minimum of 12 semester hours), in a U.S. college or university. All scholarships are in the form of certificates of award conditional upon the full-time enrollment of the winner in an accredited U.S. college or university.

The Chicago office of the Elks National Foundation will announce the 500 national winners in late April, 2022. (Many local Lodges, districts and state Elks associations award their own scholarships through this program. These scholarships are not to be confused with the 500 Elks National Foundation Most Valuable Student Scholarships.)

The 20 Top Finalists traditionally* participate in an all expenses paid Leadership Weekend in Chicago during which they’ll interview with the national judges. These 20 Finalists will be vying for two first-place awards of $50,000; two second-place awards of $40,000; and two third-place awards of $30,000. The remaining 14 finalists will receive awards of $20,000. The 480 runners-up will receive fifth-place scholarships of $4,000.
