This program was established by Jan Winkler and Hermine Drezner at Jupiter Elementary.

If your child receives a Winner Scholarship, the money will be held in a special account through the Education Foundation of Palm Beach County, Inc. Upon entry into college, a $1,000 check plus any accrued interest will be made payable to the college. The scholarship must be used within two years after graduation from high school. If the money is not used it will return to the general scholarship fund.
