Educational Outfitters, a leading provider of school uniforms in the United States and the nation's only franchise network of school uniform retailers, announced they have awarded eight students nationwide for their first annual scholarship contest.

The program was open to K - 12th graders in elementary, middle and high schools across the country, and a total of $10,000 in scholarships were awarded.

"We invited our youth to think outside the box and creatively express ways to bring about lasting change as individuals, as communities, and globally," said company founder, Jamey Elrod. "Our contest theme was how it is ultimately 'Faith, Hope and Love' which remain, and we have been overwhelmed by the faith, hope and love exuded in over 550 student entries." These creative entries included original essays, poetry, songs, paintings, collages, videos, blogs, and websites.

"Our vision is 'partnering with schools and families to advance their missions,' and in this sense we have the awesome privilege of serving the next generation as a business," said Educational Outfitters' CEO, Michael Gallagher. "Our organization has been truly inspired by the youth, and we want to thank every student who participated in this scholarship contest. The lasting change they sought to create has started in us."

Established in 1999 as a single retail store in Tennessee by husband and wife co-founders Brian and Jamey Elrod, Educational Outfitters has since grown into the largest network of retail locations in the U.S. school uniform industry. The company has distinguished itself by building a national team of local entrepreneurs providing local communities the highest level of attention, products and services.
