[TRUE STORY: My youngest son won a $750 scholarship because we told everyone we knew that we were searching for scholarships. It was a local scholarship that we had not heard about. A friend told us that he knew of a local scholarship that had received NO applications. My son applied for it and WON! There were a total of two applications for that award at the end. SCORE!!!]
