SDHSA Scholarships and Awards: The scholarships and awards distributed by the South Dakota Head Start Association are managed under the same rules, regulations and deadlines as the National Head Start Association.  The SDHSA Scholarships and Awards Committee is formed at the first SDHSA board meeting of the year and selects local winners who have demonstrated dedication and service to Head Start in South Dakota. State winners are forwarded to the regional association for consideration.
