In recognition of students with high academic standards, involvement in extra curricular activities and dedication to community, Kingsbury Electric participates with other electric cooperatives across eastern SD to recognize these students. School principals and faculty from across the state submit nominations for the award. KSFY TV selects a student each week for the $100.00 Scholarship. Selections are based on excellence in the classroom along with service in the community. KSFY TV profiles each week's winner on the 6 p.m. newscast. In addition to being honored as a Touchstone Energy Scholar of the week, the scholar is then eligible for the $1,000.00 Touchstone Energy of the Year which is presented in May.
