Groza Learning Center $1000 towards higher education essay #CONTEST
How do you help your children prepare for back to school?
I would say that it depends on the school as well as grade level the child is entering. Obviously younger kids would need more of a talk about sharing and caring, while the older kids might need to know a little more about the dangers and safety first issues. Even though I homeschool my kids, it does not mean that they are not able to go to certain classes or functions so every child really needs to be prepared.
What’s your favorite part about back to school? Well again as a homeschool mom/teacher I would say my favorite part is bringing in a new lesson plan for my kids to explore and enjoy. However not everyone has the luxury of getting to teach their kids firsthand and I know they would love to but at the same time need to find a place where the children can learn in a safe environment. I would now like to introduce the Groza Learning Center where the educators uphold the highest academic standards while also maintaining a personal, caring commitment to each student.
The world-class facility is equipped with private tutoring rooms, small classrooms, testing rooms, and one-on-one "retreat" rooms plus the center features a floor-to-ceiling tree, a babbling brook, a wall sized word-find, and a giant scrabble game
The Groza Learning Center Education Scholarship was created to help students interested in higher education reach their goal of attending college or university. Each year a theme will be chosen and students will have the chance to respond in a short essay. This year, applicants will be asked to explain what ‘redemption’ means to them and how it has played a role in their lives and in their interactions with others. Often times, when students come to Groza that is exactly what they are seeking- a turnaround with a challenging academic skill, concept, class, or a standardized test. After all, doesn’t everyone love a good comeback story? A committee will select a winner by the end of November, 2017. One winner will be selected and receive $1000 towards higher education.
The following people are eligible for the Groza Learning Center Scholarship:
1. High school students who graduate in 2017 and have been accepted into a college or university.
2. Students currently enrolled in a college or university.
The Groza Learning Center wants to hear about your take on the word ‘redemption’. Please tell us what it means to you and how ‘redemption’ has played a role in your life. This should be a short essay (under 500 words).
Please complete each section of the form below. All fields are required. By submitting an application, the applicant gives Groza Learning Center consent to use their essay, name and information for marketing and promotional purposes.

The winner will be selected by the final day in December, 2017. The winner will be contacted by January 7th, 2018 and have two weeks to respond. If no response, a new winner will be selected.One winner will be selected and receive $1000 towards higher education because the Groza Learning Center Education Scholarship is offering a committee that will select a winner by the end of November, 2017.
