The program invites nominations for outstanding high school juniors and seniors in the area to compete for two $5,000 college scholarships. Last year, the dealers received more than130 applications from western North Dakota high school students, and more than 7,900 text and online votes from the public to choose the winners.

Nominations end Feb. 20, at which time 10 scholarship finalists will be chosen. Online and text voting will take place March 3-17 to determine the winners. There will be two $5,000 winners and eight finalists will receive $500.

Students can nominate themselves or be nominated by family, friends, parents, teachers or coaches. Nomination forms can be downloaded at www.chevyscholar.com or picked up from any of the dealers.

Nomination forms can be submitted upon completion at any of the 10 West Dakota Chevy dealerships.
