AASA, Hobsons Announce Redefining Ready! 2017 Scholarship Competition Winners


Redefining Ready! National Scholarship Winners Announced
Students tweet how they are more than a test score

Alexandria, Va. – Aug. 10, 2017 – America’s 2017 class of high school graduating seniors have been telling the world, via social media, how they are college, career and life ready beyond a single test score. Today, AASA, The School Superintendents Association, and Hobsons, the company behind Naviance, are pleased to announce the names of the Redefining Ready! National Scholarship winners — based on a 30-second video entry and a 250-word essay.

Announced in March at AASA’s National Conference on Education, the Twitter-based competition was created to provide students with opportunities to share how high school shaped their post-secondary plans and, more accurately, determine college and career readiness.

Students were asked to post their videos to Twitter using the #RedefiningReady hashtag and tagging @AASAHQ and @Hobsons in their scholarship entry tweets. Students used phones, iPads or video cameras to film the videos and were judged on compelling content.

The winners are listed below and their video submissions can be viewed here. Regional winners are based on areas of the country representing AASA’s Governing Board.
