Benjamin Herold, a student at Pierz Healy High School, won an iPad through the iHELP Scholarship program.

The iHELP Scholarship was created to provide college-bound students with an additional resource for free money to assist in pursuing their dreams, a news release stated. The iHELP $1,000 scholarship is awarded, by random draw, to five South Dakota and three Minnesota high school students attending a U.S. college, university or technical institute in the fall. All applicants are also eligible to win one of two iPads. More than 6,000 students applied for this year's scholarship drawing.

iHELP is a private student loan program sponsored by local Independent Community Banks. The student loan is designed to cover the gap between the cost of education and a financial aid package, generally consisting of scholarships, grants and federal student loans.
