The “Design Your Success” scholarship is intended to give the applicants the ability to creatively submit a 1,200-1,500 word essay on how they plan to design their own success throughout their lives. The intentionally broad prompt allows applicants the freedom and challenge of creating personalized goals and plans to achieve their own definition of success. Katie has an inspiring background in service, in her local community, and her church. Katie has plans to attend the University of Wisconsin to become a news and sports broadcaster and share her talent for public speaking to a broader audience.

“One of the best byproducts of Signs.com’s success has been the ability to support and contribute to the growth of students nationwide through this scholarship,” says Nelson James, Co-founder of Signs.com. “Katie was one of many applicants, at a young age, that showed impressive maturity and an understanding on the necessity of goal setting and perseverance. We hope that this scholarship will help cover some of the costs of her college education as she works towards these goals.”

Applications for the 2020 scholarship will open up this Fall to students preparing to graduate in the class of 2020 as well as those who will be college/university freshman beginning in the Fall of 2020. More information on the “Design Your Success” scholarship can be found on our scholarship page.
