[hat's the word of officials of the West Virginia Financial Aid Associa- tion who have spearheaded an ef- fort to have the month of January declared "Financial Aid Awareness Month." The purpose of Awareness Month. according to members of the Association, is to point out the availability of student aid funds and to emphasize that students who are nterested in attending college should apply for these funds if they are concerned about the costs of'a college education. "Many West Virginia families mis- takenly assume that they will not qualify for financial aid and conse- quently don't bother to apply," said Association President E. F. Hall. "As a result of not applying," Mr Hall added, "many worthy West Virginia students aren't attending college." "West Virginia students should not rule out a college education be- cause they can't afford it," Mr Hall advises. Student financial assistance is available from federal, state, institu- tional, and private sources. Last year, approximately half of the students who attended college =n West Virginia received over $100 million through a combination of grant, work, and loan programs. The state financial aid associa- tion encourages students to obtain the West Virginia Financial Aid Form (FAF) from their high school guid- ance office and complete the form with their parent before the March 1 state deadline.

Approximately 50 students will participate, according to coordinator Richard Dulee, teacher of gifted ele- mentary students. The event will take place at G~enbrier Community College in Lewisburg, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. January 26. Partici~ 3nts w~ come from both gifted and regular education pro- grams throughout the county. Each of the ten teams of five is given a comprehensive statement of the problem. The teams then "brain- storm" specific problems which are a part of the larger problem. Next, they define the major problem and brainstorm solutions for it. The next step is to establish criteria for evalu- ating the solutions, followed by a se- lection of the five best solutions based on those criteria. Students then choose the best solution and write a solution state- ment. The judges then evaluate the statement and choose the best one from among the ten teams. Judges are Mr Dulee and the other teachers of gifted elementary students: Danielle Gibson and Dan Greene. The "Future Problem-solv- ing Bowl" is one of four problem- solving events sponsored annually by the teachers.
