Tobacco Free North Dakota Announces Video Essay Scholarship Contest Winners

We tried to narrow it down to one winner, but one is a lonely number. For the first time, Tobacco Free North Dakota (TFND) is awarding two $1,000 scholarships for the Video Essay Scholarship Contest. The two winners are Sidney Anderson of Lisbon and Amy Moylan of Bismarck. Anderson will be attending Northern State University in South Dakota. Moylan will be attending the University of Mary in Bismarck.

“These two submissions were two of the best we’ve had since we started this contest three years ago,” said Heather Austin, Executive Director of TFND. “After discussion with the board, we decided both Sidney and Amy submitted award-winning videos.”

Usually,TFND hosts an in-person ceremony for the winner. This year, we opted for a socially-distanced video call with each winner.

“I’m really passionate about helping people quit smoking and this contest was the best way for me to spread that message,” said Moylan.
“Living life is important and finding alternatives to drugs and alcohol is best not only for you, but everyone around you,” said Anderson.
