The Diabetes Awareness Essay Contest is an annual competition allowing all high school junior and senior students to participate in the opportunity to research, organize and present perspectives on a topic related to Diabetes. With almost 400 million people worldwide suffering from the three types of diabetes and with Texas Lions involved in helping youth with the disease, the contest emphasizes the need for new ideas, understanding and dissecting societal and individual issues associated with the condition.  The scholarship award for the winner of this contest is $1,000. The runner-up will receive $500.
