Dollars for Scholars            phone-a-thon is set for March 25

The 15th Annual Dollars for Scholars phone-a-thon is coming soon. On Tuesday, March 25, students from Princeton High School will be calling people in the community to ask for donations to the Princeton Scholarship Foundation fund.

The students will be calling between 6 P.m. and 9 P.m. seeking donations for scholarships that will be awarded to this year’s graduating seniors to help with tuition at technical and liberal arts colleges.

In 2013 $11,902 was raised through the phone-a-thon. In the past 14 years $111,000 has been awarded as scholarships to hundreds of Princeton High School students.

If you do not receive a call on March 25 and would like to contribute to the scholarship fund, you may mail a contribution to the Princeton Scholarship Foundation, P.O. Box 462, Princeton, MN 55371 or visit the foundation website at to make a donation by credit card. Questions can be answered by calling Jane Hanson at 763-389-3743.
