Eligible students may attend high school at home, in a public or private school, or in another county, but they must be a full-time resident of Nassau County.

2015 Fernandina Pirates Club ScholarshipThe Fernandina Pirates Club, Inc. is calling for entries to their scholarship essay contest open to all Nassau County high school seniors. The gnarly scallywags offer two separate awards. One winner will be given some extra booty for college, and the other winner is chosen from the pool of students who enter the competition, that have chosen to serve in our United States Armed Forces.

All contestants must submit a 750 word essay to the Pirates Club, by Monday April 13, 2015. The subject is to be about pirates or pirating: past, present or future, complete with proper citations and references. Eligible students may attend high school at home, in a public or private school, or in another county, but they must be a full-time resident of Nassau County, Florida.

The award for the college bound student is a check for up to $1,500.00 made payable to the winner’s chosen school upon acceptance, and must be applied towards tuition and/or books. The winning entry for the student entering military service will receive a check for $500.00 upon completion of basic training. Proof of completion is required.

The winner(s) must be available to join the Pirates on Sunday, May 3, 2015 on the Waterfront Stage during the “Isle of Eight Flags Shrimp Festival” for a formal announcement, public relations photos and of course to grab the booty!
