Best community service for Stamps Scholarship?

What would be the best community service/leadership things to do that will increase my chance of gaining the Stamps scholarship? I am a junior in high school and plan to stay in-state and attend LSU for a double major in Biology and Geology. I am not in beta or nhs, but I plan on joining nhs my senior year.

Hi there @WillowHoffpauir,

There are a ton of things you can do to gain community service experience in high school. When searching for opportunities, make sure you're looking into which ones give you the most in terms of leadership potential, personal growth, and community impact.

We have a ton of articles on volunteering you can check out here: https://blog.collegevine.com/category/extracurricular-activities/volunteering/

In particular, I recommend this one - especially since remote volunteer work has become so essential during the pandemic: https://blog.collegevine.com/online-community-service-for-high-schoolers/
