Teamsters announce Hoffa Scholarship essay contest

CLEVELAND, August 13 — The James R. Hoffa Memorial Scholarship Fund has announced the topic for this year’s Essay Contest: “The vast majority of union members make more than the minimum wage. Why should Teamsters care what the minimum wage is?”

Applicants must be students attending a community college, 4-year institution, or a technical/vocational program, age 23 and younger who are the son, daughter or financial dependent of an eligible Teamster Member Relation (as defined in the application).

Instructions and application forms can be found on the Teamsters website.
