Meet the Finalists for Our 2020 Scholarship!
Another year, another amazing round of applications. Ever since the deadline for our Key to a Bright Future Scholarship passed on April 7, 2020, Sheryl R. Rentz and her staff have been hard at work reading through your applications. In that time, we’ve been inspired and intrigued at how students balance school, work, and life in the modern age – especially with the rise of social media and online life.
After much deliberation and discussion, we have selected 4 students as finalists for our 2020 scholarship. The debate was difficult, to say the least, but we were naturally drawn to the creativity, passion, and wisdom you all demonstrated in your essays. Without further ado, here are our 2020 finalists for the Key to a Bright Future Scholarship:
Emily L. – Reston, VA
Raj P. – Las Vegas, NV
Gabrielle D. – Denver, CO
Julia T. – Hudson, MA
We were honored and overjoyed by the massive response to our scholarship, which included more than 1,265 applications. But the job is not done yet! We have already started our deliberation about who will walk away with the grand prize: a $1,000 scholarship. The winner will be revealed on May 5, 2020, so make sure to keep an eye on our Facebook page and blog for the big announcement and further updates.
We would like to thank each and every student who applied. We loved every second we spent reading your essays and cannot wait to see what you do next. Remember to stand by your passions, keep a level head, and find the balance that is right for you. If you are still in school in 2021, feel free to apply again next year.
