The Henderson County Tourist Commission located at 101 N. Water St. Henderson,KY is hosting an Instagram contest. The winner of the contest will receive a $100 check that will hopefully be used for college or education past high school. This is a no-essay scholarship. It doesn’t have a minimum GPA or ACT requirement and doesn’t require any letter of recommendations.
