“Jump Start Your Life” Recognition Award
The “Jump Start Your Life” Recognition Award is a unique opportunity for a graduating senior to receive a $1000 cash prize to use for any future plans they may have. You don’t have to plan on attending college to qualify for this award. Our scholarship committee recognizes that some students have other plans and they have had to overcome significant obstacles to achieve graduation. We want to reward eligible seniors for completing their course of work.
To qualify for this award, a nomination must be made by any parent, grandparent, legal guardian, teacher, school staff member, or other adult. The adult nominating a graduating senior will identify the student as deserving of recognition for meeting or overcoming challenges and showing future potential.
The credit union will notify seniors of the nomination and invite their response by participation as follows: Response by video, audio, writing or personal or telephone interview to include:
- What challenges (any kind) have you had to deal with in life?
- What personal goals do you have for the near future?
- How would you use $1000.00 to “jump start” your life after high school?
The one time $1000 cash award will be deposited in a savings account at Tongass Federal Credit Union, for a graduating senior in our credit union field of membership. Winners agree to open an account at TFCU by meeting identification and information requirements, if they do not have an account at the time of application.
