Anyone selected as finalist. I am. $1000 wOOt. This is for real, right? Not some kind of fake award or scam like Outstanding Students of America or Who's Who?

    yeah, it's real. I won $2500 last year.

    Do you know how many finalists are eligible to become national scholars?

    Our kid got $1000 from Who's Who. We certainly did not turn it down.

    Sounds like you really don't know who was Horatio Alger? This is a very BIG Deal, and you should be honored to be selected as we were in Who's Who.

    How come you say Who's Who is not real?

    and how did you find out about whether you were selected for horatio alger?

    Well. It seems like Who's Who is a very popular award and it asks students to pay to get the book, so I did not think it was such a big award. But after some research, I found out that Horatio Alger is a big honor. I am a finalist and I was notified by email. I believe the deadline has passed but you can www.horatioalger.com to be sure.
