Scholarship forms are available below for 2019.
The Shep Moss Academic Scholarship Award is awarded to one college bound individual each year by South Hill Baseball to a chosen recipient for completing and winning an essay competition. The individual must have played South Hill Dixie Youth or South Hill Babe Ruth in past years. The individual must currently be a junior or senior in high school. The form will be available to be downloaded below this week.
The winner is decided based on criteria and a scoring rubric that is reviewed by a non-partial teaching panel that is not from the South Hill area.
This year the $1000.00 will be awarded to the winner at the South Hill Baseball's Dixie Youth closing ceremonies. The money will be in the form of check that will be made out to the school that the winner will attend. The check will be written when the winner begins their college attendance and contacts South Hill Baseball with proof of college enrollment.
