Thirteen talented seniors from public and private high schools across the state each have been awarded a $1,000 scholarship as district winners of the Florida Realtors® 2009-2010 Scholarship Essay Contest for High School Seniors. Local high school student, Jordin Bender of Lake Mary was one of the district winners.
A number of community leaders, media representatives, educators, business executives and Realtors from across the state volunteered their time and expertise to serve as judges for the district-level essay competition. The first-place district-winning essays -- written on the topic, "How Does a Realtor Professional Benefit the Community?" -- will be reviewed by a state panel of judges, who will select the top three state-level or grand prize winners. State scholarship winners may be announced either prior to, or as part of, Florida Realtors 2010 Convention & Trade Expo held Aug. 25-29 at the Rosen Shingle Creek Resort in Orlando.
Congrats Jordin Bender, Lake Mary Florida resident!
