Deadline Approaching For $5,000 Legends Scholarships

Eight deserving student-athletes will be getting a much needed $5,000 college scholarship thanks to Legends For Kids, but time is running out to apply.  

Legends camps and clinics have been making a difference for KELOLAND kids for years. Recently, the program expanded from free athletic instruction to include the college scholarships thanks to HyVee, Sanford Health, First PREMIER. KELOLAND Media Group is also a sponsor. So far, $65,000 has been handed out in two years. This year, a total of $40,000 is up for grabs. 

"This scholarship is for those student-athletes that maybe aren't necessarily that star athlete on the team that's going to get an athletic scholarship but those that have the character and have shown the leadership in their schools and their communities. Those are the people that we're looking for," Paul Farmer with KELOLAND Media Group said. 

Applications are available on the Legends For Kids website. They need to be sent in by mail or email by 5 p.m. Friday
