The Competition

The 2015 Heritage Competition will be held January 23-24, 2015 in Longview, TX. Students must be present to compete.  While we understand the dates may not work out for everyone, for consistency of the competition these are the only dates students will be allowed to compete. 

In order to compete in the Heritage Competition, every student must be deposited at LeTourneau University.  Depositing before January 1st will also give you an extra $1,000 per year scholarship, it is highly recommended if you are coming to Heritage to deposit by January 1st. The deposit is non-binding and is fully refundable until May 1st.

A $300 Heritage Travel Grant is available for students who attend Heritage 2015. This can be in addition to the Travel Grant used for a separate visit to LETU. Travel Grants are applied to the student's account pending fall 2015 enrollment.
