How it works
This year, Great Southeast Flooring America is awarding a $1,000 scholarship to one deserving student at each of these 16 Brevard County high schools:
Astronaut, Bayside, Cocoa, Cocoa Beach, Eau Gallie, Edgewood, Heritage, Merritt Island, Melbourne, Palm Bay, Rockledge, Satellite, Space Coast, Titusville, Viera and Westshore.
To be considered for a scholarship, students must be in their senior year and on track to graduate in 2020. They must be enrolled in one of the 16 high schools listed above, and planning to attend a four-year college or university for the 2020 fall semester.
Students interested in earning a Great Southeast Flooring America scholarship should also be able to demonstrate traits such as high character, integrity, academic achievement, sportsmanship, citizenship and leadership.
A 500-word essay on “how I would use the $1,000” is also required along with a teacher recommendation.
