"There will be a drawing. 10 lucky seniors will have a scholarship. An opportunity to win a scholarship," said Dr. Nick Adame of LULAC Council 1. "Of course, following under the guidelines of financial aid and if they are ready to go to college by the end of their senior year, then they will get that scholarship."

Adame said that if you attend Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi or Del Mar College, the scholarship will be matched dollar for dollar.
