Eleven Centre High seniors got the experience of applying for a job during a Career Day event last week at Centre that included mock interviews by 22 sponsoring businesses from within the county and surrounding areas.

Students submitted job applications, resumes, and cover letters that were judged and screened before the students were interviewed.

At least $3,100 in scholarships was given out. Every student who completed all phases of the competition received scholarships. The largest scholarships went to the top three finishers in each category.

The top three in resume were Braxton Smith, first place; Kelsey Hett, second; and Emma David, third. The top three in cover letter were Aidan Svoboda, first; Kaitlyn Ivey-Hudson, second; and Dalton Stika, third. The top three in mock interviews were Smith, first; Jensen Riffel, second; and Jacob Hird, third.

The grand prize winner, Braxton Smith, received a $1,500 scholarship.
