KidsTek Preps for College Application Month!
October is “College Application Month” and the students enrolled in KidsTek’s high school classes have been recently visited by Amanda Hildebrandt from College in Colorado to help them get the facts about applying to college. Amanda engaged with the students, answered their questions, and led them in an interactive game that introduced them to the College in Colorado website, which covers everything from career planning guides to scholarship opportunities.
To help prepare schools for the month, College in Colorado has provided students and educators with a calendar, timeline, checklist, and much more on their website. The site has daily activities that high school students of can do to prepare for the college application process. And, students can enter for a chance to win one of ten weekly College “Go Packs” which include first-year college essentials worth over $40. Also, each week College in Colorado will award a laptop computer to a student participating in College Application Month!
KidsTek helps support students in their college applications by teaching them how to research colleges online and make informed decisions. We also instruct students to use Microsoft Word to help them construct professional recommendation requests, resumes, essays, and thank you notes– all of which are needed to have a complete and competitive college application.
