Several high school students recently became owners of brand new iPods -- and with no cost to mom and dad.
As part of its "30 in 30" initiative -- 30 iPod giveaways in 30 days -- FHSU's Office of Admissions gave away one free iPod to a random high school student every day during the month of November in order to increase awareness among northeast Kansas students.
Students simply logged on to 30in30.net and registered to win a free iPod. Winners were chosen at random. The temporary Web site gave prospective students a chance to get familiar with what FHSU has to offer. Students were exposed to academic, athletic, technological and extra-curricular opportunities available at FHSU and in the Hays community.
Winners -- except for three who have not claimed their prizes -- are listed by school district, high school and hometown.
