N.D.; and Cassandra Fick, a senior at Litchville-Marion High School, Marion, N.D.; earned the votes needed to win. Students either nominated themselves or were nominated by family, friends, parents, teachers or coaches. Finalists were detennined by their community involvement, academic achievements, extracurricular activities, volunteer work and personal essay. "Narrowing down the 275-plus applicants to ten finalists was incredibly challenging," said Kathy Gaddie, president of the West Dakota Chevy Dealers. "North Dakota and Minnesota are filled with incredibly bright and promising young people. The students we heard from were outstanding. All Chevy dealers involved are incredibly proud that we can help these great kids fulfill their potential through these scholarships. They are great representatives of their communities and Chevrolet. While the program planned to provide only four $5,000 scholarships, after narrowing the applicants down to ten finalists, the dealers decided to recognize the other finalists with $500 awards. "We wanted to acknowledge the effort and excellence of all of the applicants. We were very impressed with their accomplishments and what they give back to their communities," said Brad Sather, president of the Heartland Chevy Dealers. In addition to the scholarships, a Bismarck nominator received a $500 cash award through a random drawing.
