The Hood Sportsmanship Scholarship  Program rewards 18 deserving high school students with $5,000 toward furthering their education at a two- or four-year accredited college or university.

You can help select the finalists! Vote once a day, now through April 22, 2016, at 3 PM EDT, for the student whose essay you think deserves to be a finalist for the Hood Sportsmanship Scholarship.

The 10 students who receive the most votes will be selected as finalists. The finalists will be interviewed in May by a panel of judges and three students from each state will be selected as winners. The winners will be honored at an awards ceremony and entered into the Hood Sportmanship Scholarship Hall of Fame. To vote, click HERE and search for your state, then high school, then student
