Sedona Group invites high school seniors to apply for this year's SOAR Scholarship Contest.

The Sedona Group believes that supporting young adults in their education and training after high school is a key part of keeping our workforce and community competitive.

That is why they have partnered with WQAD News 8 to recognize outstanding high school seniors through our S.O.A.R. Scholarship program.

We are looking for seniors that best exemplify the S.O.A.R. characteristics.

S – Strength of character
O – 
Optimism – predictions for future success and where will you be making a difference
Achievement in academics and volunteerism
RResolve shown when faced with an adversarial situation
