LINCOLN – Chadron State, Peru State, and Wayne State Colleges awarded the Nebraska State Colleges Multi-Activity Scholarship to twelve high school students at the NSAA State Soccer Championships. 

“We are pleased to recognize twelve outstanding students with the Nebraska State Colleges Multi-Activity Student Scholarships,” said Dr. Paul Turman, Chancellor of the Nebraska State College System (NSCS). “Students involved in multiple sports and activities demonstrate dedication, determination, teamwork, and leadership at their schools – all highly valued traits at Chadron State, Peru State, and Wayne State Colleges.” 

In recognition of the importance of participating in sports and activities, the Nebraska School Activities Association (NSAA) and the Nebraska State Colleges created the Nebraska State Colleges’ Multi-Activity Student Award program in 2021. High school students who participate in three or more NSAA-sanctioned activities during the academic year receive a certificate in recognition of their involvement. 15,970 high school students across Nebraska received the award for the 2023-24 school year. 

This year students had the opportunity to apply for one of twelve $1,000 Multi-Activity Scholarships at Chadron, Peru, or Wayne State College. Congratulations to the following students who received the 2024 Multi-Activity Scholarship:

"I am a first-generation student, and it was a really hard decision for me to attend college or not. Then, I found Peru State College. With the scholarships and affordable living expenses here, Peru made the decision a lot less difficult."
