Hispanic (Junior) seeking scholarship opportunities

hi everybody im pretty new to this site, and i have a couple questions. i just started my junior year and im looking for some guidance on what i should be doing to be a competitive applicant in top colleges, especially because my high school is pretty competitive. I will be taking the PSATs and SATs soon (hoping for NHRP/NMSQT recognition). Besides a rigorous course load (6 total ap's), 4.0 gpa (uw), volunteering, etc, all of which i have, what can i do to have an even better edge in the admissions process. I am interested in the sciences.

I've heard of the ventures scholarship, but when am i eligible to apply? the website doesn't really specify.

Also, are there other things (summer internships, junior scholarships, science opportunities, or even essay contests) i can do? I'm studying for USABO, but what else can i do during the year? Our school has cut many honor societies so im looking for some "bulk," for lack of a better word, to add to an app.

thanks for any help!
