8th Grade Financial Fair 2018

The 8th grade traveled to the Marengo County Fairgrounds to take part in the Workplace Learning Connections Financial Fair.  Students selected a career based on their interests and passions and used Iowa's beginning salary average in each profession to attempt to live on his/her own.  Students learned how far a dollar goes in reality and have a better understanding what makes a livable wage in Iowa and the need to budget and live within personal means.  It was a morning of learning.  

Emily Waline, Courtney Rhinehart, and Melana Blomme are ready to live a professional life!

LendEDU Scholarship Database

In an effort to help students afford their higher education, our team at LendEDU recently updated our guide to college scholarships to help students find relevant opportunities specifically for them.

Within this update, we have added our new search tool where students can filter scholarship opportunities based on their grade level, GPA, the scholarship amount, and the requirements of the scholarship.

On top of this new tool, our resource teaches students and families the importance of searching for scholarships when figuring out how to pay for college. Here is the URL:
https://lendedu.com/blog/scholarships

Note: You can click the link at the top of the page to jump down to the scholarship search tool.

Here are some other points we cover in the guide:
- Different Types of Scholarships Available
- Applying for Scholarships
- Essay Tips
- Letters of Recommendation Tips
- Spotting Scholarship Scams

We have also included YouTube videos from our channel to help make the information a little more digestible and entertaining.

This resource would be very useful for your students and could certainly help them find some opportunities relevant to them.
