Every year, eligible HISD seniors have an opportunity to win a brand new car. In August of each year nearly 1,000 graduating seniors qualify to enter a drawing to win more than $10,000 in scholarships and other prizes such as iPads, laptops, and even a brand new car.

Cool To Be Smart is an annual event that recognizes graduating seniors who have completed any combination of five or more Advanced Placement (AP) or International Baccalaureate (IB) courses and taken the corresponding exams.

Students scoring a three or higher on an AP exam may also qualify to receive college credit, which can save families a lot of money on tuition.
