- Share your passions—and inspire others to get on board
- Prove you're the kind of multi-talented student colleges are looking for
- Get a shot at winning multiple college scholarships
- Connect with other high school students who mix and match diverse interests
- Be featured online in the Discus Awards Finalist Gallery
