$1,000 College Scholarship!
Kickin for College & Shootin for the Stars
Who is eligible?
Spartan Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors
How does it work?
Come to the selected Spartan home football and basketball games. All Spearfish High School Students, who show their Student ID, will have the opportunity to enter their name into a drawing. At half-time, ten tickets will be chosen from that drawing. Those ten Students will get an opportunity to kick a field goal or shoot a basket. If they are successful, then their name goes into a drawing for the $1,000 Scholarship that will be drawn at the end of the basketball season. Only one name will be drawn from all of the entries and that Student will win $1,000 from the Real Estate Center of Spearfish, payable to the college (or vocational school) of their choice. Scholarship money is to be used at the beginning of their second semester in that school.
Congratulations to Matt Burditt and Zeni Irion for successfully kicking a field goal at a recent home football game. The field goal qualified them for the $1,000 Scholarship drawing, sponsored by the Real Estate Center of Spearfish. Other students who kicked were Michaela Cermak, Logan Stalder, Robin Do, Rachel Boone, Bryon Waugh, Alan Li, Jelsie Dean and Haley Jensen. Please be sure to come out to the home game on Friday October 18, for your last chance to Kick for College, giving you another opportunity to get your name in the drawing for the $1,000 College Scholarship!
