Does a $2,000 scholarship interest you? It should, because this opportunity may present the highest probability of being awarded a significant amount of money you will ever see. Read below and think about this: The pool of applicants is small (only senior track & field and/or cross-country athletes with > 3.0 GPA from 12 schools), so the odds are quite favorable if you apply. Your only challenge is to be able to write a better essay/short story than the rest of the applicants.

Here’s the deal: A $2,000 cash scholarship will be awarded to a graduating High School Senior (male or female) who meets the application requirements and writes the winning essay.

Scholarship Application Requirements
• Participated in at least two years of track & field and/or cross country.
• Continuing their education post-High School.
• Attained a cumulative GPA of at least 3.0 (out of 4.0).
• Attending one of the following high schools:

Agoura Calabasas La Reina Moorpark Newbury Park
Oaks Christian Oak Park Royal Simi Valley Thousand Oaks
Viewpoint Westlake

Required Essay/Short Story
Coaches help you prepare technically and physically for competition. Family and friends help you endure the emotional and mental aspects of your sport through support and encouragement. Write an essay/story about how someone (other than your coach) encourages you through the highs and lows of training and/or competition.

Your submission must be written in the first-person (about you), it can be fictional or non-fictional, and it must be no longer than 500 words.
Writing Evaluation

Essays/Short Stories will be graded 0-10 points in each of the categories of Development, Effectiveness and Organization. Grammar and spelling will be graded 0-5 points. The total maximum score is 35. Essays will be read, scored, and ranked by an impartial panel of judges. The applicant who receives the highest score is the winner and will be presented with a $2,000 check.
