The Congressional Award
The Congressional Award is open to all young Americans between the ages of 14-24. It is a public-private partnership created by the United States Congress to promote and recognize achievement, initiative, and service in America's young people. Participants must complete self-selected goals and activities in each of the four program areas: Voluntary Public Service, Personal Development, Physical Fitness, and Expedition of Exploration. A Congressional Award Gold Medal Ceremony is held annually in the U.S. Capitol. There is not a deadline for this program as people work at their own pace. Interested youth can register at congressionalaward.org or call Jacob Wenger at 402-476-1400 for more information.
PSAT Test Saturday, Oct 15, 2022
The Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test (PSAT) will be given at Kearney High School on Saturday, October 15th, at 8:00 a.m. This test is, as its name implies, a preliminary version of the SAT test, and it is also the test that qualifies students as National Merit Scholarship semi-finalists. The PSAT is available on only one date per year as arranged by the sponsoring test company. It is offered to Juniors as well as Sophomores who want the test practice as they plan for scholarship-qualifying assessments in their junior and senior years. This year's PSAT features verbal questions in two sections, math questions in two sections, and writing skills questions in a fifth section. The testing time is two hours and ten minutes. Taking the PSAT as a junior gives helpful feedback regarding test performance and understanding the test format as students look toward the SAT test. The fee for the PSAT is $20, which needs to be paid to the School Counseling Office by September 15. The PSAT offers copies of a practice test that closely parallel the real test. Students who register will receive a student bulletin and the practice test, both of which will be very helpful in preparation.
