Step 2- Portfolios: You will be notified by Dr. Segura if you application is approved. If you are selected for the next round you will need to check you specific category to see what the portfolio entails.

Portfolios should demonstrate a variety of abilities and knowledge in the subject area. Each subject area has a specific set of guidelines, so be sure to read through all of them before starting to gather the artifacts.

In some categories, such as performing arts and theatre, candidates will be asked to perform a scene from a play or musical, sing a song, or play an instrument in order to demonstrate your proficiency, so this is a good time to start preparing that selection.

Portfolio Deadline: February 29, 2024, Turn all Portfolios into the Main Office.

Step 3- Interview: You will be notified by Dr. Segura if your portfolio is approved. If you are selected for the next round, you will sign up for an interview with a panel.

The interviews and performances will be scheduled for Friday, March 22, 2024.

Step 4- Viking Scholar Selection: Using scores from the interviews, performances, portfolios, GPA, and citizenship candidates will be  evaluated and a scholarship recipient will be chosen. Student winners will be chosen. Student winners will be notified by Dr. Segura the following week.

The Viking Scholar luncheon is tentatively scheduled for Friday, April 19, 2024. 

For additional information or help with any of these steps, please contact your teacher in the subject area in which category you are applying or Dr. Segura.
