Festivus Scholarship


About the Scholarship

The Festivus Scholarship is a scholarship competition that is open to everyone that is out of school. At CKSF we have high school scholarships, college scholarships and now we have Festivus, which is a scholarship for the rest of us: parents, out of school, etc.. Participants are quizzed on basic common knowledge facts.

We couldn’t come up with a catchy scholarship name when someone asked, “what about the rest of us?” Seinfeld fans will understand the reference.


Eligibility

Out of School


Award(s)

1st place – $250


How it Works

Participants must register with CKSF to take the scholarship quizzes. The Challenge Round quiz runs twice a year, September through December and January through April. A new quiz begins during the first week of every month. Scores from each quiz are added together for each participant and the top 25% of scorers will be advanced to the Championship Round. The highest scoring student from the Championship Round will receive a $250 scholarship.
