Many applications including scholarships ask for the same or similar information.  One way to save time when completing applications is to compile an Honor Resume which can be revised throughout the high school career.  This resume may be printed and attached to the scholarship application.  Example:

List Your Honors, Prizes, and Awards :

See attached resume under Honors, Prizes, Scholarships, and Awards

Most community-generated scholarship committees will accept this format.  One may use this for applications for National Honor Society, Sophomore of the Year, Boys State, Girls State, and many other types of applications which are applicable for grades 9-12.  Always check the application and then review your resume to make sure the topics reflect the information for which the committee is seeking.  If there is a doubt,  ask the counselor for advice.  Taking a little time with this will save many hours later.

For reference, here is an example of one way to complete this document.

    I have held a position as a sales associate at the Wal-Mart Superstore.  I also baby-sit on a regular basis for several families.  At home, I help out with laundry, dishes, and other household chores.

If there is more than one page to the resume, make sure the name and page number are in the upper left hand corner.
