From The High School Hardwood to the National Championship in St. Louis!

Voorhees-based American Water Works Company recently launched its second annual Hoops and Heroes scholarship program for female high school basketball players. The program rewards scholar-athletes for their academic, athletic and community achievements. The players must first be nominated by their coaches, then must submit an essay describing how participating in sports has contributed to their personal growth. A distinguished panel of St. Louis community leaders will then judge the entries. Eight first-place winners will be chosen to travel to St. Louis to attend the women's national collegiate basketball championship game in April, in addition to a $1,000 savings bond! The winners also take part in an awards ceremony in their honor. In addition, eight second-place winners will receive $500 savings bonds.
