Scholarship to be offered

A Kentucky high school junior will win a $500 scholarship to use at a Kentucky college of his or her choice — and a photo shoot for the winner’s school. All the junior has to do is tell about the biggest challenge high school students face in 200 words or less.

The “Promote Your School” scholarship contest is sponsored by the Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority (KHEAA). Photos from the winning school will be used in KHEAA 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 publications@kheaa.com or fax it to (502) 696-7574. The winner will be chosen by a committee of KHEAA employees. The deadline for submissions is Nov. 1.

KHEAA administers the Kentucky Educational Excellence Scholarship, which is funded by the Kentucky Lottery, and other state grants and scholarships.
