| The Esko Educational Foundation holds an annual Scholarship & Academic Award Night in May in the high school theater. Members of the Esko graduating class are awarded over $50,000 in local and memorial scholarships. The EEF Board of Directors selects scholarship recipients using a computerized point system. The Board takes into consideration: class rank, difficulty of courses taken, recommendations, along with community and extracurricular activities. Also, for several scholarships, financial need is a criteria. Students' names are withheld from Board members until selections are completed. As the cost of higher education continues to escalate, the EEF is committed to helping Esko graduates defray college expenses. A major fundraiser held every August is the Kristin Burkholder Memorial Run held during the annual Esko Fun Days celebration.
