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.
