Each year, KidsTek awards a scholarship to at least one of our high school seniors. This year, 15 KidsTek students applied and two were chosen as winners of the Nancy J. Sauer Memorial Scholarship. The committee chooses one or more winners per year, depending on funding available and the number of applicants.
Winners get a predetermined amount for their first year at whatever accredited institution they choose to attend. If students stay in their chosen program with passing grades, they are awarded the other half of their prize money for their second year. The committee who chose the award recipients this year included Cindy Miller, Ron Sauer and Devra Ochs.
This year’s KidsTek Scholarship winner is Trinity Vargas! Trinity just finished her senior year at North High School in Denver. She plans to attend Oregon State University where she is preparing to study Medical Biochemistry. The committee awarded a runner-up scholarship to another North High senior, Isabella Dardano! Isabella plans to attend the University of Colorado Denver and pursue a degree in Business Administration.
Congratulations to Trinity and Isabella! Everyone at KidsTek is extremely proud of you!
