“Each year I am honored to recognize the best and brightest Thirteenth District students with nominations to attend our nation’s prestigious military service academies,” said Congressman Scott. “Service academies provide students an exceptional and rigorous college education valued at over $400,000 and lead to rewarding careers in military service. Any student interested in obtaining a congressional nomination or more information about service academies should contact my office. “
