Your Vote Could Help a Buffalo Grove Student Win a College Scholarship

Two Buffalo Grove residents are competing in Augustana College's T-shirt contest. Community members can cast votes to help one of them become the "People's Choice" category winner and receive $1,000.

Two high school seniors from Buffalo Grove are among the students competing for five $1,000 scholarships to Augustana College.

Augustana’s Good Fit T-shirt contest invites prospective students to submit photos of themselves wearing the Augustana shirts they received during campus visits.

This year’s contestants include Jesse Hall, who is a senior at Stevenson High School, and Alexander Wright, a senior at Buffalo Grove High School. Votes cast on the site will determine which prospective student wins the college’s “People’s Choice” scholarship. Awards will also be administered by a panel of Augustana judges for best action shot, the best photo taken in a famous location, a photo taken at another college and a photo taken with an Augustana graduate.

Voters can find Jesse Hall’s photo under the “At another college” category, and Alexander Wright’s photo under the “Best action shot” category of the contest site. 

Voting runs through Feb. 15. Voters can cast a ballot once per day. 

“The Good Fit T-Shirt competition is a fun way Augustana can get to know the potential members of its incoming class while spreading the word about Augustana College at the same time,” the school said in a statement.
