2017 WWHS EV Team $500 Scholarship
Deadline May 17, 2017
EV Scholarship Basics:
Two EV scholarships for $500 will be awarded to any West Wilkes High School EV students regardless of grade level. The scholarships will be awarded to students that have demonstrated superior work ethic and display of EV related accomplishments. The scholarship check will be made out to the student with proof of purchase for tuition, books, or other college type expenses. In the event the student selects a military route of higher learning then the check would be made out to the student directly upon proof of enlisting.
Applicant will submit:
1) A resume that outlines community involvement, jobs and EV Team accomplishments.
2) Essay that explains why they deserve the scholarship. (Financial need may be considered)
West Wilkes High School has a scholarship award committee that will review and make recommendations for the scholarship. Mr. Tolbert is not part of this undisclosed committee. Final selection will be made solely by the committee.
Tyler drives home the win for the EV Team during the Google Gravity Games Engineering Challenge. The EVent requires a vehicle to not only go the fastest down a hill (that is over 1 football field in length being propelled by gravity alone) but to store energy in some way while going down the hill and use it to travel back up the hill. Tyler drove the Charged Hawk the fastest down the hill and drove back up the hill nearly 350 feet.
