8th grade students interested in being considered for the Lincoln Land Community College scholarship must meet the following criteria:
1. Compose an essay informing the interview committee why they believe they should receive the scholarship, what they have done to ensure they will attend college, and future plans.
2. Must have good attendance.
3. If you struggled with behavior, explain improvements in your behavior throughout middle school grades, and how this will continue throughout high school to make the use of the scholarship productive and not a wasted resource.

Essays and recommendations must be submitted to your 3rd hour teacher by the end of the day Friday, April 19th. All essay's should be placed in Mrs. Miller's mailbox. Teachers can email recommendations to Mrs. Miller. Please include in your essay who is providing you with a recommendation.
