I was recently nominated by my IB Physics 2 teacher to the United States Achievement Academy. They basically only invite top students for a collection of a national yearbook. They request $60 if you'd like the yearbook, or the option to be included without having to buy one.
Is this a scam? I've done research on it and couldn't find anything on whether or not it's a scam other than it has been around for at least 30 years. My teacher claims this is a legitimate program. They also offer 400 grants and a $10,000 scholarship.
If it's not a scam, would this be something I could add to my update package for my ED Deferrment?
