Fort Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) February 15, 2012
Dominguez High School in Compton, California has won the Common Knowledge Scholarship Foundation (CKSF)’s BYG Scholarship twice in one school year.
“I am extremely proud of my students and of the contribution they have made to Dominguez High School,” said Rigoberto Roman, the school’s principal.
BYG is a free monthly team scholarship quiz for high school students. This online format requires no essays and quizzes are based on the things you should know Before You Graduate. It was developed to increase students’ common knowledge in topics ranging from Geography to Financial Literacy and reward high scorers with college scholarships and national recognition. Every student is part of their school’s team and each student’s quiz score is based on time and accuracy. The more students who participate, the better their chances of winning. In addition to the individual scholarship prize, the school with the highest scoring students receives a cash prize and trophy. To date, CKSF, developed at Nova Southeastern University, has awarded over $300,000 to more than 700 scholarships winners. Scholarship awards are paid out quarterly and may be used at any post secondary school in the U.S.
Dominguez High School, one of over 10, 000 schools benefiting from CKSF, has participated with the foundation for over seven years. The participating students won November’s Health & Nutrition and January’s Art competitions.
According to Daryl Hulce, President of CKSF, “The BYG scholarship provides real word practical knowledge that helps students become well rounded. One of the goals is to increase knowledge needed to navigate through young adulthood.”
