Elks Most Valuable Student
A student sponsored by Moscow Elks Lodge #249 has been chosen as a national semifinalist in the 2018 Elks Most Valuable Student scholarship program.
Congratulations to Sara Whelschel.
Sara, a senior at Colfax High School, was one of 6 students recommended by our lodge for state judging and one of only 3 from the state of Idaho moving on to national judging.
The 20 top finalists will participate in an all expenses paid Leadership Weekend in Chicago during which they’ll interview with the national judges. These 20 finalists will be vying for two first-place awards of $50,000; two second-place awards of $40,000; and two third -place awards of $30,000. The remaining 14 finalists will receive awards of $20,000. The 480 runners-up will receive fifth-place scholarships of $4,000.
Good luck Sara — we look forward to meeting you later this spring and presenting you with your scholarship awards.
