From Contest to College-Ready

After an exciting four months, the Cool Cash for College Contest has ended. When this contest began in January, the amount of Promise Scholarship applications were down 54% from last year. Now, they are only down 25% from last year. Therefore, by incentivizing students to take important steps in applying to college, we have effectively closed the gap by 29%. The contest awarded 140 students with prizes valued at $12,000 which included Apple AirPods, mini-fridges, and wireless printers. Students who won are now better equipped for college and have taken an important step toward their success!
