Dear Kim,

We are excited to invite you and your students to participate in the BIG Idea Competition, a statewide competition for high school students. Hopefully you have seen the postcard mailed to you the last week of April.  We are celebrating our 10 year anniversary this year and the fact that 1,800 students have participated in this eye-opening experience. Join the 41 schools who participated last year and give your students real life exposure to the business world which impacts all of us, regardless of career path. We would also like to congratulate  Ellen Schlechter of Faulkton. Ellen won the BIG Idea Marketing Design Competition in 2015 for her business, The Calving Book App. Ellen has continued her business and recently won the 2017 SD Giant Vision Competition in Sioux Falls. She is also a Top 5 Finalist in the nation for the NFIB  Youth Entrepreneurship Award.  This is just one example of how the BIG Idea Competition can help students springboard their business. 
 
Learn more details about BIG Idea
  
The purpose of the BIG Idea Competition is to promote entrepreneurship, spur creative thinking, and encourage students to start a business. Student ideas can be for any type of business they choose. Students will submit their business idea at
www.BigIdeaSD.com.
  
Eight finalists will be chosen to make an elevator pitch and give a presentation, with a visual component, to a panel of judges during the final competition.
  
The BIG Idea entry consists of 5 sections:
  1. Concept Overview (75 words)
  2. Product or Service (250 words)
  3. Market Opportunity (250 words)
  4. Competition (250 words)
  5. Management and Operations (250 words)
BIG Idea Marketing Design Competition and Wellness Category
  
The optional Marketing Design Competition allows students to create an ad to support their proposed business idea. The ads will be judged primarily on how well the ad relates to and promotes the business idea rather than on the artistic elements.  The Wellness Category is sponsored by Sanford Health and gives an award to the best business idea addressing Wellness.

Greetings! We were thrilled to have received an application to Coolidge Scholarship from a student at your school in past years. Thank you for all you do.

We write to let you know that the 2017-18 Coolidge Scholarship application is now live. We hope that you will consider sharing this opportunity with interested high school juniors. Students can apply at www.coolidgescholars.org.

By way of quick background, The Coolidge Scholarship is a full-ride, four-year, merit scholarship that may be used by recipients for undergraduate study at any accredited college or university in the United States. Any high school junior who plans on enrolling in college in the fall of 2019 and is an American citizen or legal permanent resident is eligible to apply (unfortunately current high school seniors are not eligible to apply).

Coolidge Scholars are selected based on three main criteria:
Primary criterion: Academic excellence;
Secondary criterion: Interest in public policy and an appreciation of the values President Coolidge championed;
Secondary criterion: Humility and service.

The competition for the Coolidge Scholarship is indeed significant -- but even students who do not win have reported to us they are glad they went through the application process because it helps prepare them for college application later on. The Coolidge Foundation also invites the top 45-50 applicants to participate in its Coolidge Senators Program, which includes an all-expenses-paid Summit in Washington, DC where the students have the chance to meet each other and tour all three branches of government. Furthermore, the finalists who are invited to interview for the scholarship but do not ultimately win are eligible to receive a one-time “Finalist Award” scholarship.

We hope you will share this opportunity with your students and encourage them to apply. The scholarship application, along with additional information, can be accessed on our scholarship site: www.coolidgescholars.org. Please note the deadline is 5:00 PM EST, January 24, 2018. If you have any questions regarding the scholarship, the Coolidge Scholars Program can be reached by email at coolidgescholars@coolidgefoundation.org or by phone at (802) 672-3389 ext. 114.

Senior

Money: $1000 to a student with a Yankton College connection

Deadline: February 23, 2018

 For more information visit www.yanktoncollege.org.

Yankton College, Yankton, SD
The Yankton Daily Press and Dakotan recently carried this story about the Yankton College fund raising for the Yankton College Alumni & Educational Center.

 

 

We’re accepting applications for the Al Neuharth Scholarship for Excellence in Journalism.

The scholarship, valued at $20,000 over four years, is administered by the Media & Journalism Department at the University of South Dakota and is designed for students who demonstrate exceptional promise in media.

 

The scholarship is open to students who want to become multimedia journalists and also is open to students who want to join our student media marketing/advertising team.

 

This works through courses, special programs, mentoring, practical experience and internships. Last year Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer Robert Cohen and ESPN’s award-winning Chris Berman each spent a day with our students.

 

This year, Washington Post editor Marty Baron will visit with students on campus.

 

As part of the program, scholars will work on The Volante, USD’s student newspaper that is regularly recognized as among the best in the nation. In fact, The Volante this year – for the 17th time – is a finalist for the prestigious National Pacemaker Award, presented annually to the best college newspapers in the country. The Volante has won that award seven times.

 

Students also will participate in special training programs, be expected to have internships and participate in other student media, such as radio and television.

 

The Media & Journalism Department, student media and South Dakota Public Broadcasting all operate in the Al Neuharth Media Center.

 

Applications also are available online through our admissions page at:  http://www.usd.edu/admissions/freshmen/scholarships. The application deadline is Friday, Dec. 1, 2017, for the 2018-2019 school year.

We're asking high school seniors to submit a proposal for how they'll better their communities.

We will also fund the top project up to $5,000.

The PROCESS:

We will be breaking the process into 3 rounds, using the principles of design thinking:

  2. Design and submit your ROUND 2 artifact:
    • Next 3 phases of design thinking launch cycle (all but the final launch)
    • Students submit an artifact representing their progress and learning
    • We give additional feedback
    • Deadline: March 18, 2018, 11:59 MST
  3. Design and submit your ROUND 3 reflection:
    • LAUNCH phase of design thinking launch cycle.
    • Students submit a final reflection that shares how their project is doing one of the following: 1) increasing connections, 2) building capacity, or 3) taking community-led action. They also share their ideas for acquiring further funding, in addition to the $5,000 from HGU if selected as the top finalist.
    • Include a video of yourself working on your project
    • Deadline: April 15, 2018 at 11:59 MST.

We will select 5 winners to receive $10,000 tuition scholarships to their colleges, with the top one receiving $5,000 funding to launch their project into the design thinking cycle once more during the summer of 2018 to maximize impact.

Skilled Labor Shortage Scholarship by HomeAdvisor

DEADLINE: December 15th, 2017


Win a $5,000 Scholarship!

Tell Us How You Would Solve America’s Skilled Labor Problem.

Imagine a world — just 30 short years from now — in which no one knows how to build a house or fix a leaky toilet.

America’s facing a problem that could make that kind of situation a reality: High school and college students have stopped pursuing careers in important skilled labor trades like plumbing, carpentry, and heating and cooling. As a result, there is a shortage of younger workers with the knowledge and skills necessary to take the place of older, retiring workers. This means that there may soon be few people who know how to perform the work that keeps our homes and businesses in good working order!

Our challenge to you: How do we fix it?
HomeAdvisor will award a $5,000 scholarship to three students who can devise a creative solution to America’s skilled labor crisis — further detailed in HomeAdvisor’s 2016 Skilled Labor Shortage Report — by answering two questions:

  1. What would be your strategy for solving the labor shortage?
  2. What would you do to encourage others to attend a trade school instead of a four-year college?
What would you do to encourage others to attend a trade school instead of a four-year college?

  1. Here’s what you need to know:
  2. How to enter:
    Simply email your well-developed, 1,000- to 2,000-word essay to scholarship@homeadvisor.com. (Be sure to proofread it first.)

    Deadline:
    HomeAdvisor will accept essays from March 1, 2017 through December 15, 2017 (11:59 p.m. MT).

BB High School Student Video Contest Offers Cash Prizes

Better Business Bureau (BBB) Foundation annually sponsors a video contest open to all students in grades 9-12 who reside in South Dakota. Cash prizes will be awarded to students and their schools for entries receiving first and second place.

Students may enter individually or form teams of two to four participants. Five hundred dollars will be given to the creator(s) of the winning video, and $500 will be given to their school. In addition, $250 will be awarded to the second place video, and $250 will be given to their school. Winners will be determined by how well the entry adheres to BBB’s brand, expresses the theme "Start With Trust,” the quality of the video’s production and how many times it’s been viewed on BBB’s YouTube channel.

This competition provides an opportunity for high school students to creatively learn the values of BBB - trust, honesty, reliability and objectiveness – and challenges them to discover how these values can be applied in their everyday lives. Contestants will gain valuable marketing experience because they are also challenged to get the most views on YouTube by promoting their video on social media. Aside from the benefit to the students, this is a wonderful opportunity for your school.

“If you know of high school students who are creative and ambitious, please encourage them to enter this contest,” stated BBB President Jim Hegarty. The video submission deadline is Friday, February 2, 2018, and the winners will be notified on or before March 1, 2018.

Complete details about the contest, required forms and videos submitted by the 2017 participants can be accessed by clicking on the Student Video Contest icon on the homepage of BBB’s website at bbbinc.org.

    As you know well, the skill gap is widening in our Country and serves as a detriment for future generations. Too few students are pursuing education in career training and as a result there are millions of vacant jobs nationwide because there are not enough skilled workers to accept them. Like you, the Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation believes that career technical education is pivotal for our society.

    As the Scholarship Foundation’s Director of Scholarship Programs, I am reaching out today because only 7% of our current 2,300 recipients are pursuing a certification or degree in a career/technical education path. Our organization is passionate about increasing this number through awareness and would like to connect on ways we might be able to work together. Our scholarships are for children of Marines and Navy Corpsmen pursuing a post-secondary education at any accredited school—whether that be a career training, trade school, community college, or four-year university. We’re not competitive and we award scholarships to every eligible applicant. Since 1962, the Scholarship Foundation has provided nearly 40,000 need-based scholarships, valued at nearly $120,000,000. We are the Nation’s oldest and largest provider of scholarships to military families.

    I hope you will consider partnering with us to raise awareness of our scholarship opportunities. I welcome a call to discuss a potential partnership and have also attached materials that can be disseminated to the communities in your state. Click here for a digital brochure. If you would like printed materials or more information about our program, please visit www.mcsf.org, or contact me at (571) 384-2791 or jeanna.adams@mcsf.org.

    We believe every dream has a journey and every career has a path. Together, we can help children of Marines and Navy Corpsmen forge their career path with scholarship support and lessen the worry about affording their education.

    Thank you for your time and consideration.

     Sincerely,

    Jeanna Adams

    Director of Scholarship Programs
