On April 14, registered students took an exam on Oklahoma history, geography and people in the hope that their high scores would earn them a cash scholarship or tuition grant. This year the organization made available more than $450,000 in scholarships to students statewide.

“This program is designed to reward Oklahoma students who have taken an interest in the rich history of our great state,” said Shannon L. Rich, president & CEO of the Oklahoma Hall of Fame and Gaylord-Pickens Museum. “It also encourages Oklahoma students to stay in state to attend college and be inspired remain here to live and work after receiving their degrees.”

 Tuition grants and cash scholarships were awarded to 128 students from 53 counties in Oklahoma. The students were recognized during a scholarship awards ceremony at the Gaylord-Pickens Museum, home of the Oklahoma Hall of Fame, on Monday, May 14th, in Oklahoma City. A complete list of winners by county is available at OklahomaHoF.com.
