Basketball fans will turn out at the end of this month for the Touchstone Energy All "A" Classic, at Eastern Kentucky University, but some money raised from that tournament goes to help students from all over the state.
Saturday, more than 100 students from Kentucky's smallest high schools were at EKU.
They attended interviews with business leaders and college professors.
Seventy students will win $1,000 scholarships.
The 'All-A Classic' has awarded nearly one million dollars in academic awards since it started giving scholarships about 20 years ago.
