$1,000 SCHOLARSHIPS FOR SENIORS
 
The PTCO will award $1,000 scholarships for post secondary education in recognition of personal growth and development by answering the following prompt:
 
“How have you left your mark on the Smoky Hill community?”
 
All applications will be considered and finalists will be asked to interview for the scholarships. All seniors who are planning to continue their education in some way (college, technical school, vo­cational school, etc.) are eligible. This is not a need-based scholarship and can be used for any college-related expenses.
 
The PTCO works all year to raise money for these scholarships. They are possible because the community supports the PTCO in many different fund-raising endeavors. We encourage all Smoky Hill seniors to consider this opportunity.
