  1. I wanted to tell you thank you so much for all of your hard work listing all of these scholarships. My daughter just won the Snap Agency scholarship for $1,000 she found listed on this site. That is such an amazing feeling considering she is only a junior in high school!

  2. We are running into some good luck this week!! My daughter got another email this week letting her know she won a Do Something campaign for $5,000!!!
