Winners 2019 Chances Scholarships

Platte Canyon Area Chamber of Commerce Chances Scholarship Program

The Chances Scholarship Auction for 2019 was a big success.

Between business sponsorships, individual donations, and the silent and live auction, we were able to raise $9,350. This success wouldn't have been possible without all of the local businesses and individuals who donated their time, money, and auction items.

The auction started off with just over 90 items, and we were able to get everything sold between the silent auction and live auction. The winners of the quilt raffle for this year was Audrey and Neal Tracy.

Helping students to a bright future

Members of the PCACC Chances Scholarship Program believe strongly in two things. Our mountain area is filled with exceptionally bright and talented high school students AND those students deserve a chance to pursue their dreams.

The Chances Scholarship program is dedicated to giving area students an opportunity to equip themselves for a promising future through further education, including college, trade or technical schools or arts programs. We take grades and class standing into consideration, but we also look at individual initiative and desire to build a future.

The PCACC Chances Scholarship Program is willing to take a "chance" on every mountain area student, giving each one a "chance" to fulfill their dreams. We have seen over the years the difference this makes in the lives of young people and we know this year will be no different.
