Rise To Shine Scholarship 2020

Allen Flatt Ballidis & Leslie

At Allen Flatt Ballidis & Leslie, we take a team approach to practicing law – you can tell by our firm's name and forty years of service to the people of Orange County! One of the things that makes us good at what we do is the individual strengths of our team members. We have rockstars who love to fight in court, write legal briefs, and investigate the tiniest details of a case, just because of who they are as people.

For that reason, we celebrate uniqueness, diversity, and hard work, and we want to prove it by offering $1,000 to an aspiring college student from anywhere in the U.S.! Please read the information below to see if you qualify and how to enter. We look forward to getting to know you and discovering the potential you see in yourself every day.

How do you plan to become your best self? It's easy to think the answer is "go to college" or "volunteer with a cause" or "cure cancer," but we're talking about something different. Something small. What little things can you do now to form good habits, that will make you the person you're meant to be? How do you celebrate your uniqueness – what you bring that no one else can – when you rise and shine every day?
