The 1st Annual Broosters 2012 Scholarship Essay Contest
At Broosters we value education and we believe in giving back. Are you a graduating high school senior and plan to continue your education in 2012? If you plan to do that right here in South Dakota, then this is your chance to earn scholarship money. In the Broosters Dakota Cuisine Cookbook, we share more than recipes. We share our stories about friends, family, hunting, and growing up in South Dakota. And if you’ll share your favorite South Dakota hunting or outdoor memory with us, you could earn a scholarship for 2012.
We will offer three (3) 2012 scholarships: The winner receives a $1000 scholarship, and two runners-up will each receive $500.
Graduating high school seniors who live in South Dakota and will attend a South Dakota college, private college, university or technical institute.
