High school students with money management know-how could earn funds for college.

Four $1,000 scholarships will be awarded to high school seniors who excel in financial literacy, a subject which, as of this year, is required for high school graduation.

In a news release, America First President and Chief Executive John Lund said the Jump$tart scholarships aim to recognize students who have passed a financial literacy class and plan to further their education.

"There's more to financial literacy than just balancing a checkbook," Lund said. "You need to know the difference between good debt and bad debt, and how to take full advantage of existing resources.

The scholarship is open to high school seniors and requires an application, a copy of a college or trade school application and an essay. Jump$tart entries must be received by email or postmarked by March 22. For more information, visit www.utahjumpstart.org. —
