High School Seniors: Answer this video challenge and you could earn $1,000 towards your post-secondary education:

Create a video time capsule to be opened 10 years from now.  It can be to yourself, your family, your school or your hometown. Explain what you are including and why. 

If your family receives monthly service from Midwest Energy & Communications (MEC) at your primary residence, you are eligible to apply. Scholarship applications must be submitted by Monday, March 15, and awards will be announced in April. Selection for the scholarship is based on the video submission along with academic performance, extra-curricular activities, community involvement and/or employment and honors and awards. A minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.0 on a four-point scale is required, and an official transcript must be submitted for final approval. 

  • Videos should be 2-3 minutes long. 
  • We award four scholarships each year and announce winners in the spring. 

Please note: Children of MEC employees and board members are not eligible to apply.

The application period for the 2021 scholarships has closed. Winners will be announced later this spring.
