The Kansas Buffalo Association is offering a $1000 scholarship to a high school senior or first-year college freshmen who is involved in raising bison and/or is planning to pursue a career in an agriculturally related field.

 

The KBA invites interested applicants to complete an application, provide one letter of reference and submit a 500-word essay outlining their relationship/interest in bison and why they should receive the scholarship.

 

KBA members may act as sponsors to qualify family, friends or a member of a local school or county ag-related organization (FFA, 4H, etc.) for this scholarship.

 

Applications and supporting materials are due by Oct. 15, 2017.

 

The scholarship will be awarded at the 28th Kansas Buffalo Association Sale in Salina, Kan., on Dec. 2, 2016. Either the recipient or his/her designate must be present to accept the scholarship and have a picture taken with representatives from the sponsoring organizations.

Improve your score

This class consists of five hours of instruction on the four ACT subject tests. Students gain insight into the test's content and format while learning practical test-taking strategies for maximizing their test score. Students learn how to control the test rather than letting it control them!  ACT’s “Preparing for the ACT” is used in this class in addition to our strategies.  This class covers general ideas about the test as a whole, as well as specific strategies for each sub-test:

Don't forget to bring a calculator and an extra pencil with you!

Seniors….. Hope you have all had a great summer and are getting things ready to come back and finish up!  I’ll start making updates each day that I have new information for you.  Please get in the habit of of checking this website at least once a week for details.

May 17, 2017

Seniors, I have attached a list of possible website sources for college information & scholarships for you to review. You don’t have to use this but it’s a good resource to have if you wish to apply for scholarships.  We usually get a little more serious with this list around September but if you want to look at some of these sites now you are more than welcome to. If you would fill out the information for FASTWEB on-line next Fall that would be a great start for each of you.    There are many other websites out there you can use also.  If you find any apps that you think are outstanding please let us know and we will share them.
