TAYLORVILLE, IL – Seniors at Taylorville, Hillsboro, Litchfield and Pana High Schools are reminded that registration for TCCU’s 9th annual scholarship program closes at day’s end Friday, October 14th.
The program is open to all senior students graduating in 2023 from these high schools and who plan to continue their education at a trade school, two year community college or four year university.
Eight students — two from each of the four high schools – each will receive $1000 awards toward their education.
“Registering for the program is easy,” says TCCU President, Will Perkins. “We simply need the student’s name, a good quality photo – such as their senior photo – and a completed Parental Permission form.
Registration and parental permission forms are available at all four TCCU locations, as well as on the credit union’s web site at www.TCCU.org.
Award recipients are determined by votes cast by community residents at local businesses. Tri-county residents can cast votes for their preferred student(s) whenever they shop at participating retailers in Taylorville, Hillsboro, Litchfield and Pana.
“For every $10 they spend at a participating business, shoppers can cast one vote for a student. Spend $100, you can cast 10 votes,” Perkins explains.
Voting will begin Friday, November 18th, and run through February 28, 2023.
Participating businesses in their respective communities will display a poster of registered students’ photos. There is a limit of 100 votes ($1000 purchase) per any individual purchase. There is no limit to how many businesses people can patronize, or how many times.
Students have until end-of-day Friday, October 14th, to register.
Scholarships will be awarded at the end of the school year in May, 2023.
