Daughters of Scotia Contest

In honor of the Chicago Highlanders’ Centennial, the Daughters of Scotia Pride of Scotland Lodge #265 from North Riverside, IL is sponsoring a giveaway of a practice chanter and beginner book and a drum practice pad and set of sticks to a young aspiring piper and drummer!

So that these gifts have the best chance of being used, we are asking those wishing to enter to write a one page essay (between 250 and 500 words) outlining your interest in music, your Scottish heritage, your family history of piping or drumming or anything which would demonstrate why you’d be a good candidate to receive one of these beginner kits.

Contests need to have rules, right?

Entries are limited to persons 17 years of age or younger and you must be a resident of the Chicago area. Of course we would like you to pursue lessons with the Highlanders but hey, we’re not going to be jerks about it as long as the winners intend to follow through with lessons with the goal of becoming a bagpiper or drummer!

Entries must be submitted to [email protected] by October 31, 2021.

Entries must include your full name, age, address (for Chicago area residency verification) and a contact number.

Please indicate whether you are entering to win the practice chanter or drum pad.

Entries will be reviewed by members of the Pride of Scotland Lodge #265 and the winners will be notified prior to November 15, 2021. Winners will be selected by the Daughters of Scotia and their decision is final.

Oh yea, if you win, we expect you to let us use a photo of you on our social media!

Questions? Did we leave anything out? Please let us know at [email protected].

Good luck!
The Chicago Highlanders
