Becker Dollars For Scholars 34th Annual Phone-A-Thon

Becker Dollars for Scholars® is sponsoring the 34th annual Phone-A-Thon for scholarships.  The Phone-A-Thon will be held on the evenings of March 4   and March 11 with March 14 or a day during the week of March 18 as alternate dates. 

Volunteer students will call Becker School district residents to take pledges.  Larger donations from individuals, businesses, and organizations are also accepted.  All money raised is awarded to Becker High School students.  Scholarships of $500.00 (or more) are available to graduating high school seniors planning to attend public or private colleges or technical colleges and to those who are already attending college or technical college.  The Becker community has contributed over $600,000 to over 1200 scholarship recipients over the past 33 years.

Becker Dollars for Scholars has a website through Scholarship America and all student applications will need to be completed by logging on to the website becker.dollarsforscholars.org and click on the “Students and Parents” tab and follow the instructions there.
