Four Central Alberta post-secondary students will receive $1,000 scholarships through the Servus Young and Free scholarship program.

The students, along with 26 others from across the province, were selected from 318 applicants and announced as winners on Nov. 13.

Taylor Lakusta-Wong of Lacombe, Jamie Calkins of Red Deer, Jordan Moos of Three Hills and Rebecca Burnand of Red Deer all won the scholarships thanks to their unique visions for the future and for having a minimum grade point average of at least 70 per cent.

To be considered for the scholarship, students were asked to submit a 90-second video or 300-to-500-word essay describing a significant life lesson and how it will shape their world in the future. Submissions were then judged by a Servus panel.

Applicants had to be between the ages of 17 and 25 and attending a post-secondary institution in Alberta for the 2013-2014 academic year.
