Districts Make The Difference Scholarships


Scholarship Value: $2,000
Awards Available: 3

High school and college students are invited to create a fun and informative short video (under 90 seconds) highlighting the ways special districts 'Make the Difference' in California for a chance to win a scholarship. Additional prize money will be given to the teachers of the winning students to promote technology and support distance learning.
