The class of 2019 earned $3,000 (which could be used to help pay for a class event like graduation or prom) for increasing their FAFSA completion by at least 5% from the previous year.


This year there is even MORE $$$ to be earned! 

  • Over $35,000 in prizes

  • $800 awarded to each school with a 5% increase from the previous year

  • Additional $500 & $1,000+ cash prizes for schools

  • Contest ends March 15

It's not too late to complete your FAFSA.      Remember - the FAFSA is the gateway to financial aid. Even though you may not get anything from the federal government, many schools and scholarships (like the ones available to ONLY Castle seniors) require that you complete it.

     Need help completing it? Stop by CCRC, rm 34 and we can help :)

Want to do it at home? Complete it here at fafsa.gov
