5. Begin thinking about who you want to ask to write recommendation letters or letters of reference. You want to ask a teacher who knows your capabilities and can recommend you based on your academic performance (athletic and fine arts performance as it applies to you). No offense, your best friend’s mom or the local preacher may be able to testify to your character, but can he/she testify to your academic performance with specific detail given to projects or assignments you
have completed? Print off a recommendation form from the scholarship page and look at the areas you will need to fill out.
Keep in mind that you need to be detailed when you fill out the form, especially if you are in a large high school. The way you fill out this form can help “jog” that teacher’s memory about you and your performance in his/her class.
