Nikolai, Patty (December 3, 1963)

Miss Patty A. Nikolai is our school’s 1964 Betty Crocker Homemaker of Tomorrow. She achieved the highest score here in a written knowledge and attitude examination given December, 1963. General Mills Inc., sponsor of the program, will award her a “Homemaker of Tommorow” pin to signify her achievement, and her test paper will be entered in competition for state honors.

The state Homemaker of Tomorrow will be awarded a $1,500 college scholarship and will be named a national finalist. Her school will be presented with a set of Encyclopaedia Britannica, Inc. The state’s second ranking girl will receive a $500 scholarship.

In the spring, state Homemakers of Tomorrow, each accompanied by a school advisor, will enjoy an expence-paid educational tour to Colonial Williamsburg, Va., Washington, D.C., and New York City. The trip will be climaxed with the naming of the 1964 Betty Crocker All-American Homemakers of Tomorrow. She will be chosen on the basis of her original test score together with personal observation and interviews during the trip. Her scholarship will be increased to $5,000. National runners-up will receive $4,000, $3,000 and $2,000 scholarships.

All time highs in the number of senior high school girls and schools enrolled marked this, the tenth annual Betty Crocker Search program. More than 484,000 girls in 14,000 of the nation’s schools participated. Since the program was launched, more than three and a half, million girls have participated and scholarships approximating one million dollars have been awarded.

The Betty Crocker Search is approved by the National Association of Secondary-School Principals. Judging is by Science Research associates of Chicago, nationally known educational publishing and testing organization.
