Children's Defense Fund-Ohio "Beat the Odds" Celebration
Join CDF-Ohio and former Beat the Odds honorees, Alberto Jones and Sara Abou Rashed as we celebrate the resilience of our 5 2019 Beat the Odds Ohio high school seniors who are beating the odds.
The Children’s Defense Fund-Ohio Beat the Odds® scholarship program honors outstanding high school students who have overcome tremendous adversity, demonstrated academic commitment and given back to their communities. CDF-Ohio provides a $5,000 college scholarship, a laptop computer, and an invitation to join CDF’s youth leadership development programs.
Beat the Odds® scholarship applications are available in fall* via CDF-Ohio’s website. In spring, after a competitive review process, five Ohio high school seniors are selected as CDF-Ohio’s Beat the Odds® scholars. These students are introduced and honored at the Beat the Odds® Award Ceremony where their powerful stories of resilience, courage, determination and hope serve as a stirring reminder and call to action for change-makers, policy makers, and every one of us to renew our commitment to children. They are a reminder that no one should ever give up on a child.
