Anyone can enter to win a scholarship by completing a registration card, which will be distributed and collected during the football game.  The scholarships will be non-transferrable, with an expiration date of 36 months following the award date.  One name will be drawn, and winner announced, at each high school listed above, prior to the end of game.

High school junior and seniors can apply the scholarship towards dual enrollment/credit courses being offered at NETC, their school, and/or online, to help jump start their college career.   To learn more about how junior and seniors can earn college credit while in high school, contact NETC’s Dual Enrollment Coordinator at 843-921-6995 or speak to your high school advisor.
