It's still years away until I can compete in something like this, but since my uncle loves to travel and I hope to take some trips with him, I'm hoping that scholarships like this are still around when I'm ready for college. The deadline is January 17, so go to register now
The AAA Travel High School Challenge is being repeated in 2006! More than just a geography contest, this scholarship program tests students' travel literacy by focusing on tourism destinations. It encourages youngsters to study geography and to consider careers in the travel and tourism industry. Designed by travel industry educator Dr. Marc Mancini and sponsored by AAA preferred partners, the Challenge is a three stage competition with over $100,000 in college scholarship funds up for grabs. Ninth through 12th grade public, private and home-schooled students throughout the United States can put their travel knowledge to the test for great prizes and a chance to compete in the national finals in Orlando, FL.
