The winners of the 11th Annual Heartland Scholarship have been chosen. We received many excellent essays, making it a challenging decision. The winners are:
$1,000 winner – Hailey from Inver Grove Heights, MN
$500 winner – Brian from Montgomery, MN
$500 winner – Karly from Cottage Grove, MN
Here are a few words from our winners.
“I’m so grateful for this scholarship because it’s helping me attend my dream school next year. Without it, this opportunity wouldn’t have been possible for me and my family. I can’t wait to continue my education at the University of Minnesota Twin Cities with the help of this Heartland scholarship in the fall.” Hailey
“This scholarship means so much to me. I am attending South Dakota State University majoring in mechanical engineering and minoring in precision agriculture. This scholarship will help fund the extra schooling needed to achieve both dreams.” Brian
“The Heartland Credit Union scholarship will be incredibly helpful as I continue my education this year at UW-River Falls. This scholarship will help reduce the financial burden of college, as I hope to attend veterinary school after graduation from River Falls.” Karly
Congratulations to our winners and thank you to everyone who entered. Watch for the 12th Annual Scholarship in the spring of 2017.
