Fort Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) August 26, 2006 -–
Beginning today, high school students from across the country can compete in the Common Knowledge Scholarship High School Internet Challenge, a series of Internet-based quizzes that test students’ knowledge on both academic and common knowledge topics.
Every high school student in the country is eligible to participate in this challenge. Students at each high school are automatically part of their team and compete against other high schools across America in a tournament-style competition. During the first two weeks of each month, students take a 15-question, multiple-choice quiz. The high school with the highest score will advance to represent their state in the national tournament, which takes place during the fourth week of each month.
Winners of the monthly High School Internet Challenge receive an engraved trophy for their school, and a cash scholarship is awarded to the individual high scorer. The high school that wins the national tournament will compete in the CKSF Grand National Championship, held in April.
CKSF also often recognizes students who show the initiative to form and organize a team. The Student Leadership Award is available to students who complete a variety of community service activities. More information about the award can be found on the CKSF Web site.
Students can register to compete in the High School Internet Challenge at http://www.cksf.org. Once one student registers with the Common Knowledge Scholarship Foundation, their school is automatically part of the program.
The Common Knowledge Scholarship Foundation provides college scholarships through Internet-based quiz programs. Scholarships are available to high school, college and graduate students, as well as parents. Some popular CKSF scholarships include: FBI Common Knowledge Challenge, Criminal Justice, National Business School Scholarship, National Nursing Scholarship, American Heroes – U.S. Military Challenge and Movie Scholarships. CKSF is a not-for-profit organization administered at the Fischler School of Education and Human Services at Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
