Reliant Opens ‘Scholarship For Champions’ Nominations For All-Star Houston Student-Athletes

There are students who bat a thousand on and off the field. They clear hurdles and dive right in. Reliant wants to meet these standout Houston area high school student-athletes who may be eligible for $5,000 scholarships through the Scholarship for Champions program. In its eighth year, the merit-based program is a partnership between Reliant and the Houston Texans to encourage youth academics, athletics, leadership and community service.

Teachers, coaches and administrators can nominate students at http://scholarship.myreliantenergy.com through Aug. 31, 2013. Judges from Reliant and the Houston Texans will select the winners based on achievements in academics, athletics, leadership, ethics and community involvement. Selected students will receive surprise visits from the Texans at their schools to learn they’ve won and recognition during a special on-field ceremony at a Texans home game.

Nomination criteria include:
  • A full-time high school student scheduled to graduate in the spring of 2014
  • Plans to pursue a college degree
  • Participation in a varsity sport between Aug. 1, 2011 and the present
  • Overall minimum grade point average of 3.0

Last year’s scholarships were delivered in person by Houston Texans former player and ambassador J.J. Moses. Winning students included a soccer player who lived apart from family in Mexico and excelled in Advanced Placement courses, another soccer player who endured multiple eye surgeries yet earned a spot at an NCAA Division 1 University, and a football team captain who suddenly lost his father and still remained an active leader and community volunteer. All applicants exemplified strong values and character in the face of adversity.

“Each year Reliant is amazed by the academic and athletic accomplishments of these student athletes and the positive impact they are making,” said Karen Jones, Reliant chief marketing officer. “The Scholarship for Champions program, along with our employee volunteer tutoring, youth sports camps and other initiatives, inspires kids to continue their education and build their skills for the future.”
