        Mensa, the high IQ society, is offering a scholarship for students who are enrolled in post-secondary education for the fall and spring 2015-2016 terms. You do not have to be a genius to apply, though that would make you smart. We are guaranteed to have one winner from the Sangamon Valley area. The scholarship winner will receive $300 to $1,000 based on their essay of 550 words or less on their life, academic, and career goals. The Mensa foundation awarded nearly $60,000 in scholarships last year and this year the foundation will award over $82,000. The deadline for this scholarship is January 15, 2015. All high school seniors from Mr. Redden’s English IV class at Brownstown High are participating in this essay competition. For more scholarship ideas contact Mrs. Hardiek in the guidance department.
