2023 Denim Day Scholarship

Posted: February 28, 2022

For the sixth year, New Horizons is excited to give students opportunities to receive financial assistance for their futures while they engage in prevention education about sexual assault in their own community through a scholarship competition. Funds for the scholarships are raised by community members, elected officials, businesses, and students that choose to donate $1 when they wear jeans as a social statement on April 27th.

The “Denim Day” Scholarship will be awarded to two high school seniors, one in La Crosse and one in Trempealeau County schools. Each scholarship is for $500. Applicants will be required to submit essays 500 to 750 words or a 3-to-4-minute video by May 1st at 11:59 pm. The prompt will focus on the effects and perceptions of sexual assault and victim blaming in their community. Submissions can be made in English, Hmong, or Spanish. Application can be found at bit.ly/denimdayscholar.

For more information about the scholarship and application process, please contact Outreach Advocate, Kim, at or 608-791-2610 ext. 1309.
