Click on the link, read the information and apply. You can earn high school credit for participation.


I know everyone is aware of this already, but, seniors PLEASE complete your FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). Even if you don't think you will qualify for aid, you may qualify for scholarships.
