If you are a high school senior there is an opportunity to go to school with a scholarship. According to 4-H Youth Coordinator Kati Peiffer, the Christina Hixson Award is available to high school seniors. The Awards which were first given in 1995 are awarded to 100 seniors each year. Peiffer says these awards are designed to demonstrate Iowa State University’s commitment to the student potential that exists in various ways beyond the measures of class rank or standardized test scores. The Christina Hixson program provides each recipient with a half-tuition grant to be used at Iowa State University. If you would like more information on how to apply for these awards, contact the Washington County Extension.
