Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority
FRANKFORT, Ky. — One Kentucky high school junior could win a $500 scholarship to use at a Kentucky college of his or her choice — and a photo shoot for his or her school. Just tell why your school is the best in the state in 200 words or less.
The “Promote Your School” scholarship contest is sponsored by the Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority (KHEAA) and The Student Loan People. Photos from the winning school will be used in KHEAA and The Student Loan People books and other publications.
To enter, send your essay to KHEAA, Publications Section, P.O. Box 798, Frankfort, KY 40602-0798. You may also e-mail your essay to email@example.com or fax it to (502) 696-7574. The winner will be chosen by a committee of employees from KHEAA and The Student Loan People. To ensure objectivity, students should not mention the name of their school or any other identifying factors in their essays. They should put their name and the name of their school on a cover page. The deadline for submissions is November 1, 2008.
Students from high schools that have already been featured — duPont Manual, George Rogers Clark, Murray, Trimble County and Boyle County — are not eligible this year.
KHEAA and The Student Loan People provide millions of dollars each year to help Kentucky students pay for college. KHEAA administers the Kentucky Educational Excellence Scholarship, which is funded by the Kentucky Lottery, and other state grants and scholarships.
