Annie Hagar

Annie Hagar, a Mount Si High School Student, was awarded a $1,000 scholarship from the Opt In for Student Success video contest held by Ready Washington.

The goal of the contest was for students to voice why a high-quality education is important to them, including the value of assessments as a tool in being prepared for college and career.

Five Washington public high school students were each given $1,000 scholarships for their videos explaining why they “opt in for a better education.” Additionally, each student selected his or her favorite teacher to receive a $200 Visa gift card.

The winners were Hagar, the only sophomore to win a scholarship, Caedmon Calbero and Sara Archer, both juniors at Marysville Getchell High School, Ethan DuWors, senior at Timberline High School, and Elizabeth Min, junior at Decatur High School.

A committee of judges from Ready Washington selected winners based on content, creativity, and video quality.
