High School Senior Scholarships
Each year, Bluestem awards ten scholarships to high school seniors whose parents/guardians are members of Bluestem Electric Cooperative. In 2017 the scholarship amounts were raised to six $750 scholarships and four $500 scholarships. The scholarships are awarded to the top 10 candidates that complete a two-stage process. The first stage includes an application and test that must be completed and returned to Bluestem in December. In the second stage, a panel of judges interview the finalists in the following spring.
The 2019 scholarship recipients are Wyatt Bentz, Washington County High School; Maren Blanka Wamego High School; Eva Hinrichsen, Rock Creek Jr./Sr. High School; Jana Kellogg, Manhattan High School; Karrin Laraon, Clay Center Community High School; Ryan Moser, Rock Creek Jr./Sr. High School; Braden Schwarz, Rock Creek Jr./Sr. High School; Lauren Simmons, Washington County High School; Katie Sleichter, Clay Center Community High School; and Kynzie Underwood, Wamego High School. Congratulations!
