Students and their parents interested in $6,000 college scholarships are encouraged to participate in the upcoming Crash Course on career and college planning to be held at Killdeer High School on November 6, 2014.
Crash Course, a FREE regional event, begins at 6:00 pm local time. Featuring a free meal and hands-on sessions for 7-12 graders, parents, adult students, and educators. All schools in the region are encouraged to attend. A new laptop computer and digital camera will also be given away at each Crash Course event.
Crash Course is a great one-stop-shop for all your questions on preparing for college, discovering job opportunities and learning how to pay for school.
“I wish I would have brought my freshman student with my senior because there is so much information to start looking at now,” said a parent who attended previously. “It’s a fun way to learn how to qualify and plan for a $6,000 scholarship; explore high demand, high paying jobs; plan for a career and college; and, apply for financial aid.”
“Helping parents and students see the local job opportunities and the education opportunities to attain the jobs will go a long way toward attracting, retaining and supporting the “grow your own” workforce we need in our state,” according to event organizer Deb Eslinger, Executive Director for the Center for Technology & Business.
Each participant will receive a collection of resources and can choose to attend three of six different hands-on breakout sessions. Topics covered include financial aid, life after high school, job opportunities, entrepreneurship, ND state scholarships and RUReadyND.com.
