Scholarship Programs

For the past 30 years, Moose Lodges and Chapters have organized high school students into highly effective speakers with the goal of educating preschool and elementary school-aged children on a variety of topics, including drug and alcohol abuse, child abuse, “stranger danger”, bullying and peer pressure, and healthy habits and nutrition. 

Students enrolled into the program present Moose Kids Talks to 4 to 9 year old children in their communities, then submit their presentations to be judged by high school officials for a chance to become a Delegate at the Moose International Student Congress held in April of each year. 

The Delegate's Moose Kids Talks are then voted on by each student at the Congress and the top 5 winning presentations are awarded scholarship money ranging from $2,000-$12,000.

The Virginia Moose Association's Youth Awareness Program has been successful over the years and has proudly produced top 5 winners.
