I would encourage this award to be extended to online public cyber charter schools. Many of these schools offer coursework more difficult than the local districts and the students are motivated to achieve excellent grades. Some students also strive to complete both a full load of high school coursework and college courses taken at local community colleges. Students often include many extra-curriculars from school clubs to sports at both the local districts and privately. It does the community a disservice to exclude these highly motivated students.

The essay needed for eligibility, what is it about? What is the topic in which we are writing?

I applied for this scholarship in fifth grade and won in 2008, I've been recognized as a repeat or returning scholar in 2010, 2011 and 2012. It's a great program, Dr. Carson is such an inspiration!
