2019 Scholarship Essay Contest!

Entry Deadline Extension: Now October 11, 2019!

Here at the Marion Music Academy, we believe that learning music helps students in multiple aspects of life, not simply music! In order to promote music and the arts, we are pleased to offer our Scholarship Essay contest again this year!

We are offering two 6-month (24 lessons) scholarships, one for a student in grades 1-5, one for a student in grades 6-12. To be eligible to win a scholarship, students should write a short essay of 500 words or fewer expressing what music means to them, and why they want to take music lessons.

We'll select two winners from the submitted essays, one from grades 1-5 and one from grades 6-12. Scholarship recipients will be selected and notified by November 1, 2019, and the selected essays will be posted on our website!

To enter:

  • Mail essays to 940 8th Ave, Marion, IA 52302, or submit via email at

  • Include a cover page with the student’s name, parent’s name, grade level, and contact information.

  • Deadline for entries has been extended to October 11, 2019.

This contest is open to all area students whether or not they currently take music classes at the Academy.

We can't wait to read your essays!
