Think the Vote:
At the Bill of Rights Institute, a trusted resource for social studies educators for twenty years, we are committed to finding ways to engage middle and high school students about the important issues facing our country today, within the framework of the principles and virtues of our nation’s Founders. That is one of the reasons we created Think the Vote, a website where students can go to learn about the issues and engage in thoughtful, civil debate away from the noise of social media.
Every two weeks, on the Think the Vote debate platform, we propose a question for students to comment on, and every two weeks we award two gift cards and T-Shirts to the students who make the strongest case for their position on both sides of the question. At the end of the school year, we will be selecting a winner from all of the bi-weekly winners and that student will win a $1000 scholarship.

Jimmie L Dean Scholarship Foundation is now taking applications for the 2019-2020 academic year through April 15, 2019 at our website www.jimmiedeanfoundation.org Our mission is to provide financial assistance to Oklahoma students who will attend Oklahoma colleges and universities that we feel will remain in out great state after graduation and contribute to the Oklahoma economy for many years. This award does not consider income levels, hardship conditions, or a specific entrance test score (although we do require a minimum 20 ACT score for 4 year colleges and Universities and 17 for OSUIT students). We do take into consideration the test score when trying to project a student's success in their chosen major area of study. We are simply looking for true Oklahomans who may find themselves in the position of not having sufficient funds to attend college but have income levels that preclude them from receiving enough financial assistance to cover their costs of attendance.Our application form provides an avenue for a short student essay to allow them to introduce themselves to our foundation. We rely upon this to help select our finalists each year. We encourage you to communicate to prospective students they take this opportunity very seriously. You would be surprised as to how many essays simply state the students need for money or tell us about the other members of their family but really nothing about themselves. In all candor we already know they need money or they would not be applying and telling us about family members is only relevant if it provides insight into the student. We want to know about the student, what jobs they have held, what would make them a good investment for us, and how do they exemplify the qualities of the Foundation.
Our awards are primarily awarded to students who will be pursuing degrees that are science related rather than arts majors. Therefore, some of the majors we will not consider are music, performing arts, english, literature, psychology, sociology, journalism, business, pre-law, political science or similar majors. In short, we are looking for students who are wanting to make or build things or serve in a health science field.
