explaining their life and educational goals. Maryland Mensa
judges select the best of the essays submitted and send the
most suitable to the Mensa Foundation for a national,
regional and local awards competition. In addition, our
local judges choose one essay to receive the Maryland Mensa
Lee Morrow Memorial Scholarship, which is supported by our
local auctions and donations. An essayist may receive more
