Scholarship/Essay Contest for Florida High School Seniors -Sponsored by the Florida Assocation of REALTORS
In today’s New economy everyone is on a budget, especially students and their families who are considering higher education after high school. The Florida Association of REALTORS has a wonderful scholarship opportunity for graduating seniors to write a 500-word essay based upon “How a REALTOR Professional Benefits the Community?”
This year each of the winners from the 13 Regional Districts will receive a $1,000 scholarship, the first-place district winners will compete for one of three state-level scholarship awards of $5,000. The 2009 total scholarship funding from Florida Realtors will equal $28,000 of much needed support.
The essay contest application kits can be obtained from senior high school’s guidance offices or you can download a kit by visiting the Florida Association of REALTORS website.
I hope that we see a Lake Mary High School Senior as one of the winners!
Just a quick word from the Attorneys [The Rules]: Florida Realtors’ statewide scholarship awards program is open only to high school seniors who reside in the state of Florida and plan on continuing their education at a college, university, technical school or other institution of higher learning. The college or institution of higher learning does not have to be located within the state of Florida. Children whose parents are licensed real estate practitioners are not eligible for contest entry; nor are children whose parents are employed by any local Realtor board/association or by the Florida Realtors.
