A former Southridge High School student is one of five contestants selected to attend the BCS National Championship football game on Jan. 7 in Florida for the possibility to win a $100,000 scholarship.
Megan Hardy, now a student at Washington State University, entered a video contest sponsored by Dr. Pepper earlier this fall. The video showed her talking about becoming a teacher and how the money would go a long way toward fulfilling her goal. Her video was selected as one of ten to be put to a vote online, with people visiting the contest's website and Facebook page and voting for the top contestants.
Hardy has already earned a $2,500 scholarship getting this far in the contest but still has to make the cut to be one of two students brought onto the field during halftime to throw a football to win the $100,000 scholarship.
