I’ll be speaking at the Minnesota Catholic Home Education Conference and Curriculum Fair on June 2nd, and again (a separate, different presentation at the same conference) on June 3rd, 2017.
You don’t have to be Catholic or a home educator to attend.
If you purchase a $55 ticket to the Friday class I’ll be teaching at this conference (“MAKE THEM SAY WOW: How to Write Brilliant Scholarship Application Essays”), admission to the entire conference including the exhibit area will be included in your admission at no extra charge.
Description of Friday morning session
Imagine your child applying for 10 scholarships every single year, starting in 8th grade and going all the way through grad school. 80 – 100 scholarships altogether. Wow! That would be amazing! But who wants to write 100 scholarship essays? Not your kid, that’s for sure.
Here’s the brilliant solution. Your child writes one stunning scholarship application essay, and then modifies it and uses it over and over again to apply for 100 different scholarships. You make sure this is such a brilliant essay that it gets your kid money — even if he or she has lower grades and test scores.
This 3-hour class will teach you and your child exactly how to write such an essay. You’ll learn to:
1. Throw the old “introduction-body-conclusion” essay structure out the window. That’s an informative essay structure that doesn’t work for persuasion.
2. Use the same principles of argument that lawyers use when arguing cases in court. (Be sure you know all three component parts of logical argument before you try this.)
3. Use vividly written stories to capture attention and create powerful emotional pull. Begin to see potential in your child’s own life stories, the ones that in the past you only viewed as run-of-the-mill and ordinary.
4. Equip your child and yourself with a new, clever, multi-layered organizational structure that makes room for all of his or her greatest accomplishments without ever sounding scattered, disorganized, or disjointed.
Other students have called this class “amazing” and “revolutionary.” This class is also suitable for applicants to law, medical, business, and grad school.

Applying for scholarships is a relatively small but important part of getting through college debt-free. Be sure you’re doing it in the best way possible.
This event is open to the public, but pre-registration is necessary. Registration links will be provided in my free weekly email newsletter in March of 2017. It is highly recommended – but not required – that parents and students age 12 – 24 attend this class together.
Cost: $55 per person includes admission to the Minnesota Catholic Home Educators Conference and Curriculum Fair (including its exhibit hall).
