We love our hometown (fun fact – four of our employees share the same hometown) and want to find out what you’re bringing from home to college with you.  It could be a physical object, like your favorite sweatshirt, or a lesson your soccer coach taught you; whatever you’re “carrying” to college, share the significance with us and explain the sentimental value and story behind it. To win, describe this item/experience/lesson in a piece no longer than 1000 words, but please include between 1-5 of your own related pictures.

Who’s Eligible

High School student (18 years old+) who will attend an accredited college or university in Fall 2017.

How Much

$500 to be used for tuition.

How to Enter

Write a brief essay (maybe 500-1000 words) about what you’re bringing with you to college and explain the significance. Then submit your essay along with a few pictures for bonus points. We’ll be announcing the winner on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Don’t forget to follow us so we can send you a message when you win!

The SAT/ACT

In order to meet entrance requirements for the UC and CSU systems as well as most other colleges/universities students must take the SAT and/or the ACT. These tests are used by colleges and universities to determine/predict whether or not a student will be successful in college and are used to determine eligibility for entrance into each college/university. Although these tests are not the only factor in the admissions process, they are a necessary requirement for all students who apply to a four year college/university.

Paper applications and registration materials are available in the PHS Counseling Office. Students can also register on-line for the SAT @ www.collegeboard.com and for the ACT @ www.actstudent.org. Please see your PHS counselor if you have questions about the SAT/ACT.

**Students applying to a UC Campus must take either the SAT/ACT AND the SAT II (subject tests)**
**Students should check with each college/university in which they plan to apply for testing requirements**
