Baylor to Host National Teen-Ager Scholarship Program

June 6, 1996

Baylor will host the America's National Teen-Ager Scholarship program June 14-16.

Ten universities will hold a college fair and interview 85 high school sophomores and juniors for a scholarship to be awarded to two girls. The winners will be selected based on their grade-point average, leadership, interview and overall appearance.

The girls will arrive at Collins Hall at 10:30 a.m., Friday, June 14, and will stay in Collins for the duration of the event. Judging will take place on Friday and Saturday at the Bobo Baptist Student Center and Waco Hall.

The main event will be held at 7:30 p.m. Saturday in Waco Hall and is open to the public. Admission is $5 for children 12 and under, $10 for ages 13 and older, and free for the parents of the participants. During this time, the girls will present either a talent or essay. The two winners awarded will then travel Aug. 4-11 to Opryland in Nashville, Tenn. There they will participate in the same type of program, only they will compete against two girls from each state.

The America's National Teen-Ager Scholarship Program is in its 25th year and is a non-profit organization that has awarded $100 million in scholarships.
