The Extra Special Super Kids Scholarship Program rewards deserving students that serve as role models for their classmates from middle school through their high school years. Extra Special Super Kids consistently demonstrate:

  • Good behavior both at and away from school
  • Good work habits at and away from school
  • Courteous and cordial interaction with peers and adults
  • Consistent learning progress, dependability and punctuality
  • Honest, trustworthiness and respect for others
Good citizenship and education are the basic building blocks of an effective work force. Children who are given an opportunity for success, recognized for their achievements and are rewarded for their good deeds and positive impacts are motivated to become good role models to their peers.

For those who are chosen as ESSK scholars, the foundation will provide financial assistance in varying degrees, taking into consideration each child and their needs in regards to the school they will attend. The Foundation is flexible and our mission is to keep our scholarship winners in school.

Participation in the program is voluntary, and all schools are encouraged to participate.

Each year participating schools will have the opportunity to nominate an Extra Special Super Kid for a college scholarship. The Directors of the Foundation will review the nominations and select the scholarship recipients.
