LAPTOPS FOR STUDENTS Supporting The Collegiate Students of Our Community
2017 is our sixth year of providing laptops for graduating
Osceola students who are going on to collage or technical school. Our vision is to provide a tablet for every
graduating senior who is continuing their education through college courses.
With the community's support, the Chamber will purchase a HP Pavilion x2 Detachable Laptop-10t touch Laptops for each qualifying student. The
number of laptops that will be given will vary depending on the support we receive. For example, if the cost for ten laptops is sponsored, only
ten laptops will be awarded. We have had incredible support for this program throughout the years and every student who has applied for a
laptop has received one!

How a Student Qualifies
Students may apply for a laptop by filling out an application and completing an essay explaining why the laptop program benefits them as a
student; in addition to how they plan to utilize this benefit for continuing their education in the field of their choice. To determine who is
awarded a laptop, the applications and essays will be judged on the most thorough and well-organized responses and those who were able to explore how
technology will be an asset to their education. An applicant’s income and their family’s income will not be asked or reviewed.
Please note: if we do not receive a students application in time you will NOT be eligible for a laptop. Deadline for applications is
no later than 3:00 pm, Thursday, May 4, 2017 to Jayne Hankins. Late applications will NOT be accepted.
As a Sponsor you Can Benefit By
We would like to take this opportunity to ask that you consider becoming a sponsor either through your business or personally. Sponsorship
donations will be gathered and the laptops will be purchased and will be distributed throughout the summer as their school schedules become available.
The recipients will be responsible for picking up their laptop when they are able to show proof of their college course enrollment.
