If I win this scholarship, I will know that the hard work of students who thrive for academic success isn’t looked over just because a student next to us thrives for success through their sport. In high school, we see an ample amount of our classmates get signed to different colleges and universities because of their abilities on the court or on the field. But, after being in classes with them for four or more years, we know that their grades aren’t of good quality all of the time. But, us students who work the hardest in the classrooms to pull off 4.0s and 5.0’s can barely get a decent scholarship because we don’t have a 25 or above ACT score. This can at times prevent students from going to their dream school because they don’t have the money to pay out of pocket for school.

Should a person get paid just for showing up for there a job and not actually doing anything? Should they also get paid the same amount even if another co-worker is better at their job?

Some parents and athletes believe equal playing time for all sports and activities is deserved all through their middle school and high school careers. However, earning your position, being undeserving of playing time, and coaches trying to win in their respected program are all issues that need to be thought of before people begin fighting for equal playing time.
