A community program called Trailhead Local is offering financial activities scholarships for students in grades 8-12. Knowing that students being connected through activities helps lead to graduation, the goal is to help students who otherwise may not participate in activities due to the strain on the family's budget. The scholarships range from $100 - $300 and will provide money for needed items such as activity-specific clothing, gear, and rentals.
Applications are available to students at Northview, Southview, AHS, and ACHS. There are three applications windows – fall, winter, and prior to summer. The application window is open from January 1-29, 2019. To apply, complete the online application, or pick up an application from your school’s office. For more information, please contact your school counselor or the Community Engagement Department at 515-289-3961.
