1. Submit the application and all required documents no later than March 9 . (see link below)
2. Required documents:
- Official high school transcript
- SAT or ACT scores
- Three letters of recommendation* which must be from your high school English teacher, your high school guidance counselor, and a character reference from a local community member of your choice.
*PLEASE impress on your references the urgency of getting the letters to us promptly. Failure to do so may eliminate you from the competition.
Students who are home schooled must present three references as well, but as they have no English teacher or guidance counselor other than parents, may select two others to write the letters. Select carefully. Ideally, they would be able to attest to your academic ability and performance as well as your character.
No exceptions will be made to the Friday, March 9, deadline .
Your file must be completed by that date.
Sometime in the following week, all students will be notified whether they are eligible to continue the process.
