- Six participants in the UL Safety Smart service learning project each receive a $1,000 scholarship
- The Sarah Weinberg Memorial Scholarship, which awards $500 to one senior LifeSmarts student each year who has demonstrated a strong commitment to giving back to their community
- Some state tournaments also award scholarships. Contact your state coordinator for more details.
Players and coaches can also earn smaller prizes, such as gift cards, by participating in LifeSmarts contests. These include:
- The LifeSmarts Essay Contest
- The T-shirt contest at the National Championship
- The social media contest at the National Championship
- The “Last Smarty Standing” finals at the National Championship
