Pleasant Hill, CA – John F. Kennedy University has announced a "Profiles in Service" essay contest open to all community college students in California. The contest was announced at the University's memorial tribute to its namesake, President John F. Kennedy, held today at its main campus in Pleasant Hill, California.

The "Profiles in Service" essay contest invites community college students from across the state to write an essay describing a service or an act by an individual or an organization that has benefitted our communities. The deadline for entries is February 14, 2014. Details about the essay contest are available at www.jfku.edu/essaycontest.

The winner of the contest will be awarded a $2,000 scholarship to JFK University. A second place winner will receive a $1,000 scholarship and up to five finalists will receive $500 scholarships.

This contest was announced in conjunction with the University's service-learning program. This program will require all graduates to complete a 30-hour community service project prior to graduation.

"Over the past 50 years, JFK University and its over 15,000 graduates have gone on to embrace JFK's memorable inaugural quote 'Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country,'" said Dr. Mac Powell, President of John F. Kennedy University. "And as we look to the future, this service learning program will not only continue to keep JFK's commitment to community service alive, but will allow us to more richly fulfill our vision of 'transforming lives and changing the world.'"
