AAA challenges high schoolers
High school students across the United States soon will tackle questions about fjords, freeways, French-speaking islands and more, as the fourth annual AAA Travel High School Challenge returns to identify America's most travel-savvy teen.
The scholarship contest offers more than $100,000 in scholarships and prizes.
The three-stage competition kicks off with a 40-question online contest that runs through Jan. 17. The top five scorers in all 50 states and the District of Columbia will compete in state finals, with winners receiving prizes and an expense-paid trip for two to compete in the national finals at Universal Orlando in May 2006. The national online contest is open to all U.S. students in grades 9-12 (public, private or home-schooled).
Students can pre-register now, take a sample quiz, and find the contest rules at www.aaa.com/TravelChallenge.
