As part of the Redefining Ready! movement, AASA is partnering with Hobsons to offer the 2018 Redefining Ready! National Scholarship. The scholarship contest allows America's graduating high school seniors the opportunity to tell the world how they are college, career and life ready.
Sixteen scholarships will be awarded to high school graduating seniors, including a grand prize of $5,000. Winners will be based on a 30-second video entry and a short essay (under 250 words) on readiness. Creativity counts, but so does honest, authentic and compelling content.

We hope you will promote this to your staff, parents and students. To download sample communication templates for these stakeholders, please visit www.redefiningready.org/communications-toolkit.
