Information Transport Solutions, Inc. announced a significant college scholarship opportunity for Elmore County, Alabama high school students. ITS is based in Wetumpka, Ala., the county seat of Elmore County.
Students who desire to apply for the scholarship must provide all requested information and complete three essay questions:
- Reflect on your school experiences in Elmore County. Select one area that you would like to see changed or improved in order to better prepare students to achieve their goals after graduation from high school.
- TheAlabama Legislature has adopted an education budget that provides each school system with additional funding that can be used to meet the specific needs of the system– “no strings attached.” You are on the advisory committee convened to recommend the best use(s) of this new, unrestricted allocation. What will you recommend and why?
- You are on the design team which must decide whether to adopt a specific device or use the bring-your-own-device (BYOD) model. Which option do you believe to be the best one for Elmore County and why? Considering the existing infrastructure, what would be needed to make a 1-to-1 initiative successful? What barriers to success would you foresee and what recommendations would you suggest to address them?
ITS will provide $5,000 directly to the winning student’s college or university.
