Twenty Georgia middle and high school students each received a $2,500 award to participate in academic enrichment programs that will increase their chances of attending college. The awards were presented through the My Future, My Choice, My Education program organized by an alliance between Boys & Girls Club of America (BGCA) and the Hispanic Scholarship Fund (HSF).

The winners were chosen based on their exceptional academic records, written essays on "why college is important", letters of recommendation and participation in the HSF/BGCA Alliance programs.

The awardees will enroll in The Princeton Review Smart Start course in Summer 2008. Recipients also will receive a certificate redeemable in their high school junior year that will pay for a PSAT clinic, free SAT preparation courses -- including four practice SAT tests -- and access to the Online Student Center. These enrichment programs were made possible through a collaborative relationship HSF established with The Princeton Review, the nation's leading provider of test preparation and counseling. The 2007 Georgia recipients are:
Laura R., 13, Brookhaven Club David R., 15, Brookhaven Club
Rosas F., 13, Brookhaven Club Jaellin N., 15, Brookhaven Club
Alina S., 11, Brookhaven Club Katherine P., 12, Athens Club
