HIGH COUNTRY — The High Country Association of Realtors is accepting applications for its annual scholarship program. One scholarship will go to a student attending each high school in Avery, Alleghany, Ashe and Watauga counties, the four-county area which comprises the HCAR.

The four scholarships are available to college-bound high school seniors based on demonstrated academic aspiration and community services.

The top scholarship is for $3,000. The other three will be $1,000 awards directed to students in each of the other three counties. The objective of the program is to build young leaders of character by providing post-high school scholarships for each school within the HCAR’s four-county area. These leaders should live with high ethical standards and be committed to service in their personal, school, business and community lives.

The application is available online at www.highcountryrealtors.org/scholarship. The submission deadline is April 17. All applicants must be a senior high school student in Avery, Alleghany, Ashe or Watauga counties planning to attend trade school or college, including community, public or private universities.
