State students can register for history scholarship competition
Oklahoma high school students who want to take part in the 2019 Oklahoma Scholarship Competition must register by Feb. 15. Students will be tested on their knowledge of Oklahoma history, geography and people.
Each year, the Oklahoma Hall of Fame offers cash scholarships and tuition grants for college to students statewide based on the test.
At least eight scholarships are available in each county.
The test will be given March 2 at locations statewide, including Oklahoma City, Fairview, Stillwater, Tulsa, Bartlesville, Edmond, Altus, Ada, Ardmore, McAlester, Durant, Lawton and Enid. Students in grades 9-12 are eligible to sit for the exam.
"This program is designed to reward Oklahoma students who have taken an interest in the rich history of our great state," said Shannon Rich, Oklahoma Hall of Fame and Gaylord-Pickens Museum president and CEO. "We hope that it also encourages our students to stay in state to attend college and remain here to live and work after receiving their degrees."
Individual donors and Oklahoma colleges and universities provide the cash scholarships and tuition grants.
