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.
