Congratulations to IDEA PCS for sweeping the 2016-17 DC CAP "Why I Want To Go To College" Essay Contest for 9th graders.
This scholarship is sponsored by DC CAP in conjunction with the DC College Savings Plan/Calvert Investments. First, second, and third place winners were selected from each ward of the city. IDEA students placed first and third for Ward 7, beating all other ninth grade applicants that applied in this area last year.
Those winners were:
Michael Artemus, 1st Place, $2,500 Scholarship
Sir Jerome Treadwell, 3rd Place, $1,500 Scholarship
Thank you Mr. Miles and Sgt. Briscoe for assisting us with all of our applicants last year.
