-- How Will You Use This Story? --


(OPEN):
THE SEVENTH-ANNUAL "HOOD MILK SPORTSMANSHIP SCHOLARSHIP"-PROGRAM IS NOW ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS.  AND, WORLD-CHAMPION GYMNAST, ALY RAISMAN [AS IN "RAYS" OR "RAZE"], IS HELPING TO RAISE AWARENESS OF THIS YEAR'S SCHOLARSHIP-OPPORTUNITY...

(RAISMAN):
"
GIVING BACK TO THE COMMUNITY--AND DISPLAYING GOOD SPORTSMANSHIP--ARE VERY IMPORTANT TO ME.  AS AN OLYMPIC-GYMNAST, I CERTAINLY STRIVE TO WIN--BUT COMPETING WITH BOTH INTEGRITY AND RESPECT IS JUST AS IMPORTANT.  AND, LIKE MOST NEW-ENGLANDERS, I GREW UP DRINKING 'HOOD MILK':  THAT'S WHY I'M SO EXCITED TO BE WORKING WITH THIS YEAR'S 'HOOD MILK SPORTSMANSHIP SCHOLARSHIP'-PROGRAM.  I ENCOURAGE NEW-ENGLAND HIGH-SCHOOL SENIORS TO APPLY FOR A CHANCE TO RECEIVE A FIVE-THOUSAND-DOLLAR SCHOLARSHIP, TO FURTHER THEIR EDUCATION AT A TWO- OR FOUR-YEAR ACCREDITED-COLLEGE OR -UNIVERSITY."

(BRIDGE):
WHO'S ELIGIBLE TO APPLY?

(RAISMAN):
"
STUDENTS MUST PARTICIPATE IN A RECOGNIZED, VARSITY HIGH-SCHOOL SPORT, HAVE A G-P-A OF AT LEAST THREE-POINT-ZERO, PERFORM VOLUNTEER-WORK, AND PROVE THEIR ABILITY TO DISPLAY SPORTSMANSHIP AND INTEGRITY--ON AND OFF THE FIELD--BY WRITING A SHORT ESSAY."

(BRIDGE):
HOW ARE THE WINNING STUDENTS CHOSEN?

(RAISMAN):
"
THE PUBLIC IS ASKED TO VOTE FOR THEIR FAVORITE ELIGIBLE-APPLICANTS, ONLINE--WITH THE TOP-10 FINALISTS, FROM EACH OF THE SIX NEW-ENGLAND STATES, INTERVIEWED BY A PANEL OF JUDGES.  THREE STUDENTS ARE THEN CHOSEN, FROM EACH STATE, TO RECEIVE A FIVE-THOUSAND-DOLLAR SCHOLARSHIP.  I'M PROUD TO HELP CELEBRATE STUDENTS WHO ARE MAKING POSITIVE IMPACTS ON THEIR COMMUNITIES--AND I ENCOURAGE EVERYONE TO APPLY."

(CLOSE):
THE ENTRY-DEADLINE IS FRIDAY, MARCH 11TH.  FOR A COMPLETE LIST OF RULES, VISIT "HOOD"-DOT-COM-SLASH-"SCHOLARSHIP".
