SPARC [scholarships] expands the mindsets of students, faculty, and members of the surrounding community by empowering students with a platform to spread awareness on key topics. Throughout the school year, there will be four distinct SPARC [scholarships] events. At the first three events, students will speak on a chosen topic and the winner of each event, as chosen by the audience and the SPARC [scholarships] committee, will receive a monetary award and advance to speak at the fourth and final event as a semi-finalist. At this event, these semi-finalists will have the opportunity to elaborate on their previous speeches and a winner will be chosen.
SPARC [scholarships] speaking events will be held on November 12th, January 30th, and February 28th. The annual speaking event will be held on April 15th. More details coming soon!
