Our 2015 Earth Day Essay Winners
After launching our inaugural Earth Day essay contest in December, we received a plethora of dynamic and thoughtfully composed submissions, but, in the end, just nine scholarships were be awarded.
We are proud to introduce our winners for SHARE’s first annual Earth Day Essay Competition!

Our scholarship winners received their prizes this past Friday in an Earth Day celebration held at Amarachi, in Brooklyn.
N.Y.S. Assemblyman Walter Mosley and educators Samuel Adewumi, Rosalyn Jarvis, and Macari Agapito judged the competition. New York City Councilman Robert Cornegy provided the keynote address.
Frank Fraley, President of SHARE, said, “These students are shining lights. They are brightening our future. Their scholarships were well earned and it was a pleasure to spend the night with them.”
In their essays, students were tasked with addressing the role of nuclear energy in a sustainable world in the form of an essay, prose or dialogue between two imaginary people.
Congratulations to all our winners. Details on our 2016 application season will be coming this fall!
