Best Buy @15 Scholarship Program

Best Buy just launched a "New teen-led social change platform called @15™ with the mission to ensure opportunities for young teens across four dimensions of adolescence: education, life skills, leadership and relationships. Best Buy wants to help students prepare for a brighter future, which starts with a college education."

To qualify, among other things, students should:

  • Have made extraordinary contributions both inside and outside of the classroom.
  • Demonstrate commitment to and involvement in volunteer community service or work experience
  • Demonstrate exemplary community service or work experience

We think that Mosquito Bed Net fund raising is a great way to participate in social action, community service, and global awareness.
