2021 Workers’ Memorial Day Scholarship Essay Contest

The theme of the Connecticut AFL-CIO Health and Safety Committee's 2021 Worker Memorial Day Scholarship Essay Contest will highlight the efforts and sacrifices of the workers of today and of this pandemic. Connecticut high school seniors are being asked to choose from one of three prompts and respond in an essay of 1,000 words or less that demonstrates that they have been inspired and personally affected to seriously think about the importance of workplace health and safety and of the consequences that arise when workers are forced to toil in unsafe working conditions such as what has occurred and continues to occur during the SARS COVID pandemic.
