Application Tips:

  • Make Your Essay Mean Something! Tell personal stories that tell the selection committee something important about you. Avoid generic phrases like “Webster’s Dictionary defines community service as…” Avoid tired clichés in your writing.

  • If You Got It, Flaunt It! Tell us all about your groups, organizations, extra-curricular activities, leadership positions, interests, hobbies and/or strengths.

  • If you wouldn’t say it, you shouldn’t write it! Don’t get caught up in the thesaurus graveyard. Use words and phrases that you know and are comfortable using.

  • Make Your References Count! References must be from individuals who can provide specific examples that can attest to your qualities FIRST HAND. Include two (2) SIGNED & SEALED references, from an adult non-family member, illustrating how you show leadership and character in everyday life. The references must be signed, and placed in an envelope with a signed & sealed flap. Make sure you request them ASAP!

  • Proofread! Proofread! Proofread! Don’t let a careless mistake speak for you.

  • DON’T BE LATE! Competition is tight and spaces are limited for provisional membership. Early applications are encouraged!

  • ASK QUESTIONS! If you’re unsure about anything, call before submitting your application.

Please note that spaces are very limited. Incomplete and/or late applications WILL NOT be accepted. NO EXCEPTIONS.
