To all Sterling Scholar Hopefuls:


Thank you for your interest in the Sterling Scholar program at Dixie High. Whether you are a freshman,

sophomore, or junior, it is never too soon to prepare. Most successful candidates begin early by

participating in both school and community activities.


Please read through the materials given at the orientation meeting or on the DHS website under the

Sterling Scholar tab and consider your qualifications as they relate to the requirements for Sterling

Scholars. We hope you will find great satisfaction as you challenge yourself and seek for excellence

along the way, and as you commit to fulfilling all aspects of the competition.


If you are not already aware, the Utah Sterling Scholar program is the largest scholarship program for

high school students. The scholarship money received varies from district to district and from college to

college. Even though you may not be a winner or runner-up, the honor of competing is a great addition

to your resume and portfolio.


Should you decide to compete your senior year, we encourage each of you to give your very best to the

competition on the school level. Those selected as winners will have their pictures displayed in the DHS

Sterling Scholar Hall of Fame. Winners will also have the privilege of representing Dixie High at the

regional competition in the spring.


Summers are a crucial time for preparing to enter the competition in the fall. Increase your community

service, find ways to lead out, and begin collecting items to demonstrate your success in scholarship,

citizenship, and leadership. All this will give you a jump-start and ease the stress that befalls so many

once school is in session.

Thank you again for your interest in the Sterling Scholar program. We look forward to working with you

and supporting your efforts in this competition.
