SCRANTON — Toyota of Scranton will host the second annual Toyota of Scranton Challenge Pep Rally Dinner, where the 3 finalists for a 2014 Toyota Corolla LE will be announced.

The Toyota of Scranton Challenge Pep Rally Dinner will take place Thursday, April 17th at 6:30 pm at 3400 N. Main St. in Scranton. The dinner is to recognize these exceptional community members and high school seniors in Northeastern Pennsylvania.

In association with the Coaches vs. Cancer program, the Toyota of Scranton Challenge uses specific criteria like GPA, involvement in the Coaches vs. Cancer program, community service activities on a voluntary basis, as well as other extracurricular activities or organizations to honor High School seniors in the Scranton/Wilkes Barre area.

The nominees all demonstrate charitable characteristics on a continual basis, volunteering their time and their talents to their communities, schools, churches, and other charitable organizations. A personal experience with cancer is not required, but is common.

Principals at 42 area high schools were mailed application packets and given the opportunity to nominate extraordinary members of the Class of 2014 at their school. The nominees are invited to attend the Pep Rally Dinner at the Toyota of Scranton dealership, as well as their parents, the nominating principals, athletic directors, and coaches.

In addition to the Grand Prize winner, the other 2 finalists will be awarded a $1,000 college scholarship.
