The National Museum of the U.S. Air Force in southwest Ohio holds a writing competition for students seeking scholarships.
Contestants in the Air Force Heritage and History Writing Competition must describe how American pilots in World War I helped create a U.S. Air Corps and the U.S. Air Force. They must identify two significant U.S. pilots of that period and support their arguments with research. The Air Force Museum Foundation will provide three scholarships. Officials at the museum near Dayton say the competition is open to public, private school or home-schooled students between the ages of 13 and 18. Entries must be submitted by February 17.
