Each of the winning students will receive a $5,000 scholarship, while Goeser will receive $7,500 for having one of the nation’s highest point totals. Scholarship winners will be recognized at a gala Jan. 9 in New York City. This year’s competition was one of the organization’s most competitive, with 540 submissions from 60 member schools.
