We offer scholarships for one local high school senior boy and girl from the surrounding schools who demonstrate the characteristics we encourage through our program.  The potential candidates write an essay demonstrating how good sportsmanship and showing respect for others has influenced their lives.  Winners are selected by the SAYSI Board of Directors after reviewing their essay submissions.  The two students who are selected are presented a check in the amount of $500 for them to use towards the purchase of textbooks and other necessary items when they continue their education at the college university level.
