North Star Electric 2015 Knowledge Scholarship

Posted by

Are you aware of North Star Electric’s Knowledge Scholarship? To qualify, the parent/guardian must be an active member of North Star Electric, and your child must take a test about your cooperative that provides electricity to your home. North Star  Electric will be awarding five scholarships, one $1,000 and four $400, plus a chance to win one of eight $50 cash awards for scoring over 50 percent on the test. Most of the answers will be in the study material that North Star provides. A couple hours of study time could pay off with a $1,000 scholarship. Last year only 31 students took the test. For more information about the scholarships, please call Wayne at North Star Electric (218-634-2202) or check with your guidance counselor at your school.
