Getting your kids into college is only half the battle. Then you have to pay for it.
Foot Locker and DoSomething.org have partnered to offer 20 college scholarships to 20 amazing young student athletes. The Foot Locker Scholar Athletes Program honors students who demonstrate academic excellence and show their strength of character and devotion to their sports, as well as their communities. Students will be rewarded not because they scored the most touchdowns or ran the fastest mile, but because they have become strong leaders in the community, exemplifying sportsmanship both on and off the field. It is the award for flexing heart, not muscle.
Students can apply online or be nominated by teachers, coaches, friends and family by visiting www.dosomething.org/footlocker.Application closes on January 9, 2012 at 5:00 p.m. (EST).
Applicants must be college-bound, participate in a sport and maintain a 3.0 GPA. Participants will be required to submit three essays and two recommendations. All applications will be reviewed by a panel of scholarship experts and celebrity judges.
