The Woodside High School Athletic Boosters Organization (ABO) awards scholarships to graduating seniors to further recognize and emphasize the importance of academic and community involvement by our student athletes.
In the past, scholarships have been awarded one each to a male and a female scholar-athlete.
As set forth in our updated (May 2017) By-Laws, the ABO may choose to allocate up to a total of $10,000 annually, and distribute the funds as appropriate, per our application and review process conducted each Spring.
Applicants are evaluated on their participation and performance in high school sports, and also in the Wildcat community as a whole. Winners are chosen for how they personify and exhibit the characteristics of Leadership, Sportsmanship, and Team-work, along with Athletic and Academic Achievement.
For the 2017-18 school year, we've allocated [$x000 pending budget approval] for scholarships.
Students, please take the time to apply, we want to hear from you!
Click here for the application form due on Friday, May 4, 2018. The scholarship winners are announced at Senior Award Night in June.
2016-17 ABO Scholarship Recipients
The ABO is proud to award a $2000 scholarship to both Nicole Greenberg, headed to UC Santa Barbara, and Tim Goode, off to University of Colorado Boulder.
Congratulations to you both!

Abby’s goals this year are to get into her top schools, which include: UC Los Angeles, UC San Diego, or Boston University. With that, her dream job is to become a surgeon in a field she has not yet decided. These big dreams and goals serve as a motivation to get into a great medical school. A high set of goals will help Abby succeed throughout the rest of her high school career and end her senior year on a great note. Other than that, Abby enjoys listening to indie pop music and her dream location to travel to would be Paris, France because of the scenic beauty it has to offer.
Congratulations Abby Wong!
