Madeline Laypath of Layton High and Tristen Sorenson of Box Elder High will each be awarded $1,500 as finalists in the Driver's Ed category.
Since 2004, Jiffy Lube has awarded more than $211,000 in scholarships to 94 Utah high school students.
Jiffy Lube's local owners understand how important it is for communities to come together during this time. Jiffy Lube is now accepting essays for the 2020-2021 school year, and has added an additional $1,500 scholarship award to the Teen Driver category as an added incentive and support for students.
Students are asked to submit a 500-word essay detailing what drives them now, as an opportunity to express their inner drive and ambitions. Finalists are selected based on their essay submission. Finalists are then required to submit a short 1-2 minute video that expands on the essay they submitted and then the overall winner is selected.
The scholarships are open to all students currently enrolled in high school regardless of test scores or grades.
Scholarship money will go directly towards secondary education, in the form of college or other qualified technical or professional program chosen by each winning student.
