The 2019 WSSA Scholarship rules, application, and essay topic are now available here!
Please note there are 3 pages. The deadline to turn this paperwork into the WSSA is February 1, 2019.
Please send this information to all your club members who will be attending college next year.
There are no changes to the rules/requirements this year.
PLEASE encourage the students to review the rules carefully. I recommend each student has their club, family and/or friends, review their paperwork prior to sending to me. ALL essays/entries that do not meet the requirements will be immediately disqualified. The rules are standard and very easy but having multiple people review each essay/application for errors and formatting (font, margins, etc…) before sending to the WSSA is a great idea as we want all of our kids to have an opportunity to receive a scholarship.
The 1st place essay winner will not only receive a WSSA scholarship but will also have their application sent to Western Chapter to compete for an additional $2,000 scholarship.All completed applications/essays must be emailed to me
. We will not accept mailed copies. Also, when students email their paperwork the essay needs to be in the original format for review (such as Word), NOT A SCANNED COPY.
Winners will be announced at the 2019 WSSA Fun Days event to be held in Alpine.
