In order to encourage eighth-grade students to enroll in the Evan Bayh 21st Century Scholars Program, HCCF is offering a chance for students, along with their parents/guardians, to win iPods and gas/gift cards to Jay C Store in Corydon. The foundation will hold a drawing for the prizes at noon on Friday, Dec. 15, and winners will be contacted after the drawing.
Eighth-grade students or their families must bring the letter that confirms they have been successfully enrolled in the Evan Bayh 21st Century Scholars Program to HCCF by noon on Dec. 15 to be eligible for the drawing. Students who enrolled in the program as seventh graders in the 2016-17 school year are also eligible for the drawing if they or their families bring confirmation letters to HCCF. HCCF staff will enter the students’ names, as well as the names of their parents/guardians, into the drawing.

Indiana’s 21st Century Scholars Program began in 1990 to ensure that every Hoosier student can afford a college degree. Eligible students who keep the Scholar Pledge to excel in school and life receive scholarships to help pay for their college education. The scholarships cover up to four years of tuition at eligible Indiana colleges and universities.
