Congratulations to the winners of APHA's 2014 Get Ready Scholarship
Three students — at the high school, undergraduate and graduate college levels — were chosen from hundreds of applicants as the winners of the scholarship. The winners were selected on the basis of their essays on preparedness. Each of the students will receive $400 from the Get Ready campaign to further their education and pay for school costs as well as a free one-year APHA membership.
Thanks to everyone who submitted an entry!
