My eldest daughter has been accepted at Patrick Henry College and will begin in the Fall. We are now in the middle of an all-out search for scholarships. She has so far achieved the status of National Merit Finalist (and we are awaiting word about whether she will be a winner), so that is very exciting.
We found a somewhat interesting scholarship on line which has required her to enter a profile including a lot of information about her accomplishments. The website is Zinch.com. She entered her profile in a category called Performing Arts. If you view her profile, you can click on MEDIA to see her performances and photos from some of her recent competitions and events.
With God’s favor, she has ended up in the top ten in her category (actually oscillating between 1st and 2nd place). The catch is she must end up in first place in her category to be able to be considered in the final round for the ultimate $20,000 scholarship. Although the final round will be judged on all her merits, this preliminary round is based solely (as far as we can tell) on the number of “votes” she can muster.
K has to work for every one she gets. We don't have a pool of fellow school students to pull from for votes.
Would you help us by voting for her and then passing this along to everyone you know and requesting that they do the same? The voting ends on March 9, so if you can help, please do so before then.
You will then be asked to create a free account which does not ask for very much information. You then have the option to vote for her.
I feel like her success thus far is a direct result of our FIAR life. Thank you.
