Welcome to the 12 Days of Scholarships!

Twelve Days of Scholarships2.jpg

Throughout the next twelve days, I will be posting a scholarship. Some will even be for students ages 13-18, so pay attention to the ages for these scholarships. That means, those freshman, sophomores and juniors that want to start winning money for college, apply for these scholarships too!

Here is our first scholarship:

Seinor gamers, this one is for you! BestgamingPC.com is sponsoring a scholarship of $1,500 to a student that can write an essay about the following:

“In 1500 words or less – give us your take on the “competitive gaming” or “eSports” revolution. Can a competitive gamer maintain a well-paid career in this niche? What do you think is the future of “eSports”? We’re interested in learning where you see the industry going in the future.”

The deadline is December 31st, click here to apply.

Good luck!

USU College Tour

There is no better way to really get a feel for a college than by visiting it.  Tooele and Grantsville took 13 students to USU Logan on a tour.  Students had a chance to walk all over campus and view the different programs, they had a tour of housing and even ate where all the college kids eat.  By the time we left, many of these students had determined that USU was the school for them.

College tours are so extremely valuable. It really does help in knowing if a certain school is the right fit for you. Remember, that you get two excused absences for college visits.  Here are the direct links to all the Utah colleges and their tour pages. Get on campus!

What is Girls State?

Junior girls, this is for you! This summer, June 3-8th, junior girls from all over Utah will attend Girls State at Weber State University.

Girls State is an opportunity for girls to learn about leadership, citizenship and patriotism.  Selected girls will have the chance to learn about elected office, legislation, public speaking and how government works.  Once girls have completed the week long program, they will have earned three Political Science college credits that will go with them wherever they decide to attend college.  Weber State University will also be awarding scholarships to attend their school.

The cost to attend this event is $400 which includes room and board and all supplies for the week.

More information will be coming your way as January draws closer.  Girls will apply with Mrs. Dangerfield and then interviewed later.
