If I get a scholastic art and writing award (winner earns a scholoship) every year will that help me to get to yale. This is a curious question becuase I'm doing this this years and every year till my senior year.
I know there other scholorships but will that help me to get to Yale. My friend said that I need a full scholorship to get into Yale such as gym .... and so on.
This is a yes or no question if it's no please explain why.
The Ivy League schools get many, many more great applicants from all over the world than they can possibly accept. They're looking for brilliant, well-rounded students, with top SAT scores and strong leadership abilities.
because the winner earns a about $2,500 scholorship.
Mu uncule went to standford and he got a black advievment award every year (no joke).
Besides if I did won that I will earn more and more.
I'm doing the Pier 1 gift card contest and winner earns a 5,000 sholorship and their drawing will be the 2012 gift card season.

About the Awards
The Scholastic Art & Writing Awards have an impressive legacy dating back to 1923 and a noteworthy roster of past winners including Andy Warhol, Sylvia Plath, Truman Capote, Richard Avedon, Robert Redford and Joyce Carol Oates.
The Awards are an important opportunity for students to be recognized for their creative talents. Each year, the Alliance partners with more than 100 visual and literary-arts focused organizations across the country to bring The Awards to local communities. Teens in grades 7 through 12 can apply in 28 categories of art and writing for the chance to earn scholarships and have their works exhibited or published.
Submissions are juried by luminaries in the visual and literary arts, some of whom are past award recipients. Panelists look for works that best exemplify originality, technical skill and the emergence of a personal voice or vision.
To date, the Awards have encouraged over 13 million students, recognized more than 9 million young artists and writers, and made available more than $25 million in awards and scholarships. They continue to be the longest-running, most prestigious recognition program for creative teens in the U.S., and the largest source of scholarships for young artists and writers.

Good luck, Laruen. I encourage you to enter as many of these contests as you can. All of these experiences and awards will help you develop as a student, artist, and person. But don't neglect the academics. Grades and SAT scores are probably the most important for getting into the college of your choice.
Ok Thank You Ms Sue Soo much.
I believe in myself and my best friend told me good luck (she said I need a lot of luck).
Yup they are important.
I play a viola so if I pass nyamssa then I'll do all county strings and that will also be perfect my my application.
