RENO, Nev. — The “What Drives You?” scholarship program, funded by Reno, Sparks, Carson City, Fallon and Minden-area Jiffy Lube franchise group Griffin Fast Lube, LLC, has awarded $5,000 in scholarships to two local high school students and one school award for most essays submitted for the 2018-2019 school year.

Douglas High School will also receive $500 for submitting the most essays last year.
The “What Drives You?” scholarship program is open to all high school students in the Northern Nevada area.
Students are asked to submit a 500-word essay detailing what drives them now, as an opportunity to express their inner drive and ambitions. Finalists are selected based on their essay submission. Finalists are then required to submit a short 1-2 minute video that expands on the essay they submitted and then the overall winner is selected.
Scholarship money will go directly toward secondary education, in the form of college or other qualified technical or professional program chosen by each winning student.
