H&R Block really did it big for Scholar Week! They facilitated the filling out your FAFSA session at the information booth during the day. Students could walk by and grab a doughnut courtesy of Krispy Kreme and gain pertinent info on how to file taxes and FAFSA accurately.
Scholarship KIDS hosted its first Black History Month tribute this past February. We led the African American Scholar Trivia game at Clark Atlanta University's cafeteria. Students had a chance to learn about their heritage as well as compete for great raffle prizes if they answered correctly.
Economic Empowerment Initiative, Inc. is our fiscal agent for the organization. We collaborated with them on a project named the Achieve Your Dreams Tour hosted at the Omni Hotel in Atlanta. Our main project was hosting the Financial Literacy Jeopardy Game. Students were engaged to answer questions in teams focused on financial sustainability. Scholarship KIDS played a major role in the Student Loans & Financial Aid portion of the game.
