Dear AASA Members and Friends,

We know students are more than a score, and now we're asking them to tell us how.

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.

The scholarship contest is now open and closes on Monday, April 2, 2018. For more information and official contest rules, visit

We hope you will promote this to your staff, parents and students. To download sample communication templates for these stakeholders, please visit

Thank you,

Mort Sherman
AASA Associate Executive Director

David Schuler
AASA Past President
