Applications for the 2016 Karl R. Schneck, Jr. Scholarship are due electronically by the end of the day on Sunday, Jan. 31, 2016. All high school seniors who have participated in at least three regional tournaments, two of which were NEPA, are eligible.
NEPA Odyssey of the Mind collects donations each year at our regional tournament to fund this scholarship in memory of Karl Schneck, a past coach, regional co-director, state problem captain, and World Finals official. Mr. Schneck embodied the spirit of creativity and positive attitude that drives Odyssey of the Mind.
This scholarship is not based on financial need or academic performance. It is designed to reward students who think outside the box by allowing them to demonstrate their creativity.
