Regional Winners will each be awarded a $1,000 scholarship for post-secondary education.
National Winners will each be awarded a total of $10,000 in scholarships for post-secondary education and Kohlâ€™s will donate $1,000 to a non-profit organization on each winnerâ€™s behalf.

With the increasing cost of college and other expenses, scholarships are a great way to help out with the costs.
