The marketing plan will be created by the board of directors with three primary components: research, target, and presentation will be utilized in the plan.

We will conduct research on community businesses, all members of the community including parents of students, alumni, staff of Frederick High School, and at the same time focusing on benefactors in the community of Frederick, Colorado.

Subsequently, selections for awarding of the scholarships and announcements to recipients are made in May of the school year. All of these funds go directly to the applicant.
