Here’s a way to connect with your client base: Let your customers who have kids who are seniors in a Florida high school this year know about FAR’s 2007-2008 Scholarship/Essay Contest for High School Seniors, which offers a total of $106,000 in scholarship funding. The deadline to enter is March 7, 2008. Students must write a typed, double-spaced essay, 500 words or less, on the topic, “How Does a Realtor® Professional Benefit the Community?” FAR’s scholarship program benefits students from across the state, with prize money going to the first-, second- and third-place essays in each of the Association's 13 districts in the state. Students turning in the top district-winning essays each win a $5,000 scholarship prize; second-place winners receive a $1,500 scholarship award; and third-place winners each receive a $500 scholarship award. The 13 district-winning essays then compete for three $5,000 FAR scholarships on the statewide level. All essays, along with an official Essay Cover Form, must be postmarked no later than March 7, 2008, and mailed to the Florida Association of Realtors, 7025 Augusta National Drive, P.O. Box 725025, Orlando, FL, 32872-5025. FAR’s statewide scholarship awards program is open only to high school seniors who reside in the state of Florida and plan on continuing their education at any college, university, technical school or other institution of higher learning. Children whose parents or guardians are licensed real estate practitioners are not eligible for contest entry; nor are children whose parents or guardians are employed by any local Realtor board/association or by FAR. Scholarship contest rules and the official essay cover form are available at public and private senior high school guidance offices throughout the state. Or students, parents, teachers – anyone – can go to FAR’s Media Center Web site ( to download the required essay cover form and all other scholarship/essay contest materials.
