Four $5,000 scholarships will be awarded through the second annual Chevy Scholar scholarship program for high school juniors and seniors.
The West Dakota Chevy Dealers and Heartland Chevy Dealers of North Dakota and western Minnesota sponsor the program and are taking nominations. Nominations begin now and end Feb. 20, at which time 10 scholarship finalists will be chosen. From March 6-12, online and text voting will take place to determine the winners. The scholarship winners will be announced March 23.
Students can nominate themselves or be nominated by family, friends, parents, teachers or coaches. Nominations forms can be downloaded at (www.chevyscholar.com) or picked up from local Chevy dealers. Nominators fill out basic information about the student including community involvement, academic achievements, extra- curricular activities and volunteer work performed.
Nomination forms can be submitted at any West Dakota Heartland or Heartland Chevy dealership. At the end of the process, one nominator will win $500 through a random drawing.
Last year the dealers received more than 400 applications from North Dakota and Minnesota high school students and 10,000 text and online votes from the public to choose the four winners.
