The WIAA, Dairy Farmers of Washington and Les Schwab Tires provide the eighth annual Smart Choices College Scholarship, which will recognize one female and one male high school student for their achievements in athletics/activities, the community and the classroom with $5,000 college scholarships to the college or university of their choice.
In addition to the two $5,000 scholarship winners, eight finalists will receive $1,000 scholarships.
Applicants are required to fill out an online application and write a short essay or provide a personal statement video about “How you plan to use your education to benefit others.” Judging criteria is based on 35 percent athletic/activity excellence, 35 percent academic achievement, 15 percent leadership, 10 percent citizenship/community service, and 5 percent on originality/creativity of the student’s essay or video.
Applicants are able to save partially completed applications and return at a later date to update their information. All applications will be locked on April 1, 2020 when the application window closes. Please encourage your seniors to apply online at wiaa.com/SmartChoices.
