The Better Business Bureau (BBB) Foundation invites high school seniors, throughout its service area, to apply for its annual Student of Integrity Awards. In 2014, eight students will each be granted $2,000 college scholarships: two from South Dakota, two from metro Omaha and southwest Iowa, two from the Kansas Plains area, and two from metro Lincoln and greater Nebraska.

The Student of Integrity Award Scholarships were created to recognize and nurture future ethical business leaders. The Winners will be selected by four panels of independent judges.  They consider each student’s character, leadership, academics and the content of their essays. The students who are granted the scholarships will be those who best demonstrate their commitment to honesty and accountability both inside and outside the classroom.

The award Winners will be announced in April 2014 and recognized at a BBB Integrity Awards Luncheon in the fall.

The application guide with full details and required forms can be downloaded from the BBB’s website, in the Announcement section, at www.bbb.org . For more information, please contact Sioux Falls Branch Manager Jessie Schmidt at 605-271-2067, The BBB and its Foundation look forward to rewarding eight well-deserving students for upholding high ethical standards. Application deadline is Friday March 7, 2014.
