    Elks National Foundation Announces Top-Winners in Most Valuable Student Contest!

    /PRNewswire-USNewswire/
    The Elks National Foundation will award a total of $2.216 million to 500 national finalists through its Most Valuable Student scholarship program. The two first-place recipients each receive $60,000, the two second-place recipients each receive $40,000
    and the two third-place winners each receive $20,000, over four years. The
    494 fourth- place finishers receive $4,000 scholarships.

    Over 15,000 students nationwide began the journey toward educational financial freedom last January. Five hundred applicants earned a spot in the national finals after advancing past other outstanding high school seniors at the local, district and state levels. When all the scores were tallied, Alice Chuang of Orange, CA, and Cortney VanOstran of Joplin, MO, earned first-place finishes. Applicants are judged on scholarship, leadership and financial need.

    The 2007 top-six winners are:

    Alice T. Chuang, Villa Park High School, Orange, CA $60,000

    Cortney A. VanOstran, Joplin High School , Joplin, MO
    $60,000

    Lei'La R. Bryant, School of the Osage High School,
    Lake Ozark, MO $40,000

    Andrew T. Timberlake, Mountain Brook High School Birmingham, AL $40,000

    Raagini Jawa, Presentation of Mary Academy Palistow, NH $20,000

    Will R. Fletcher, Hellgate High School Missoula, MT $20,000
    The Elks National Foundation is committed to providing America's students with the opportunity to attain an excellent education. That's why the Foundation annually awards $3.2 million in scholarships to tomorrow's leaders. It's also why our Most Valuable Student first- and second-place awards are the largest scholarships provided by any major fraternal or service organization. A complete list of the 2007 recipients is available online at ELKS ENF SCHOLARS
