Mega Bingo, Mega Plinko, Now Mega Scholarships for high school

Today ten students were awarded tuition scholarships to the institution of their choice by J.D Financial, the parent company of MegaBingo. The initiative which will be an annual event saw the submission of application by more than fifty students, but the ten who were short listed were selected based on financial need and academic performance. In its continued efforts to give back to the community, Marketing Director, Rachel Armstrong says that scholarship program is one of MegaBingo’s projects to give less fortunate students the opportunity to pursue their education.

“Well the Mega Bingo Scholarship Program is basically a scholarship that we give to students for the four years of high school or the institution that they want to go. Umm, the students were selected on based on their grades and base on their financial status. There were many students that were very unfortunate. One in particular was an orphan, the others they came from broken homes and you know really unfortunate so it’s they really deserving. They’re poor students but they’re very smart and we at J.D. Financial just feel the need to help them along with their education to make a better Belize you know because without education we have nothing.”

Recipients of the scholarship award include students from Corozal, Hattieville and Belize City.

    God bless the staff and this project for considering this endevour, nonetheless, students that fall within grades B – C+ should still be given a chance.

    I disagree with students ranging in C’s to obtain any scholarship. Doing so will encourage CONTINUED mediocrity in our Belizean people! We should not be rewarding mediocrity nor failure!

  3. Victoria says:

    I totally agree with Zoe if we give scholarships to kids with B-C averages we are sending the wrong message that it is OK to be a failure, Belize needs much outstanding students right now who will eventually help in uplifting the country from its misery.
