BBB Student of Integrity Awards

Better Business Bureau (BBB) Foundation serving Nebraska, South Dakota, The Kansas Plains and Southwest Iowa is notifying you that it is accepting applications from high school seniors for the 2015 Scott Mecham BBB Student of Integrity Awards. Eight students will each be granted $2,000 college scholarships: two from The Kansas Plains area, two from metro Lincoln and greater Nebraska, two from metro Omaha and southwest Iowa and two from South Dakota.

These scholarships are not based on ethnicity, need or grade point average, but recognize students of integrity who represent BBB values. They are awarded to students who exemplify ethical behavior and personal integrity and who demonstrate humility, courage, compassion and respect for their peers, teachers and community.

Please share this information with your staff and students. Aside from the obvious benefit to the students, this is also a wonderful opportunity for your institution to be publicly recognized. Scholarship winners will be announced in April and congratulated in releases to television, radio and print media. They will also be recognized at BBB’s Integrity Award Events in August.

For more information, please contact BBB Communications Director Margo Riekes at 402-898-8526, 800-649-6814 #8526 or The BBB and its Foundation looks forward to rewarding two well-deserving students from The Kansas Plains area for upholding high ethical standards. Applications must be postmarked by Friday, March 6, 2015.
