Monroe, CT – March 31, 2017 – Church Hill Classics (CHC)®, a leading manufacturer and online retailer in the college diploma frame industry, is excited to announce the 24 Finalists in their 9th annual Frame My Future Scholarship Contest.

The contest was open to all students planning to attend a college in the United States as a full-time student in the 2017-2018 academic year.

Scholarship hopefuls submitted more than 3,000 entries ranging from poems, short essays, and photographs to illustrations, collages, and other creative expressions.
