"Cold Hard Cash" - B. Johnny Images



Have you ever found yourself making plans for college? You know WHERE you’re going, WHAT you’re doing, where you’re going to live…but wait, HOW are you going to pay for all of this?

In this day and age, nothing is free; it’s not like your grandparents days where, if you give a man a fish, he’ll give you one text book…you have to pay cold hard cash!!! How are you going to pay for everything if you don’t have cold hard cash? You’ve never held a job to help you save money for post secondary training, your parents never set up a savings account to put money away for your education and your band (if you are part of a band) won’t support you or cannot support you in your educational endeavors. What are you going to do?

NOW is the time to check out studentawards.com! Studentawards.com has been helping Post Secondary students pay their way through College/University by earning Bursaries and Scholarships relevant to their studies. There’s millions of dollars out there waiting for deserving students to grasp it and use it for educational purposes, if no one applies for this free money, it won’t be there next year! YOU need this money and you know it, take the time and opportunity to write your essays, prepare a resume and create a biography, it could just get you the money you need.


“Studentawards.com is the MOST AMAZING and HELPFUL site through all my venture of scholarships and preparing for post-secondary education! Thank you for all the wonderful opportunities you provide for us students! With your support, now I can begin my journey to become a doctor, professor and Indian musician!” – Queen Elizabeth II Aiming for the Top Scholarship, $3500 Recipient.


“This website has been a wonderful resource is connecting me to scholarships. Thank you so much for your help.” – Aboriginal Health Careers Program, $7000 Recipient

The Internets Hottest Trends…Social Networking & Online Radio!

Hi Everyone!

Blogging to you straight from Lytton, the Hot Spot of Canada and River Rafting Capitol of Canada, Bryce Johnny AKA Mr. Wednesday AKA mrlytton!  In today’s blog I will be introducing you to a few websites that I think will strike some general interest, websites used as a worldwide connection by both Youth and Adult.

First up is, Facebook!                                            



FB is a Social Networking site that helps you connect and interact with the people in your networks whether it’s in your school, community or region.  FB boasts to have over 150 Million Users!!! Besides making network connections, FB makes it fun and interactive with games and group pages in which your friends and you can have fun.

I discovered a very interesting Site while on FB, here is the link:  http://www.naho.ca/rolemodel

“Broadcasting from Nisichawayasihk Cree Nation in Nelson House, Manitoba – we are a multi-format radio station playing everything from Country to Rock, R & B to Dance to Hip Hop. We play the hits from every era that have had an impact on the global music scene. At NCN CREE FM we believe in satisfying all age groups every hour with an eclectic mix of music that will keep listeners tuned in every day.”  Nisichawayasihk Cree Nation.

http://ncncreefmradio.com/index.html I love to listen to this radio station in my free time, a good friend of mine, Russ Bonner – Director/Host, will take requests doing his best to entertain his audience’s needs. Last summer, I was the first British Columbian to have called in a request! It was amazing, the NCN Community Members and the Board of Directors found this to being an amazing feat reaching out all the way to British Columbia.

Well, unfortunately this Blog must come to an end for today, please check out Link 1 and make your Aboriginal Youth Role Model Nominations today! Also, listen live to my good friend, Russ and be sure to request something appropriate, he’d love to play your tune of choice…or make a quick announcement!

Until Next Wednesday.
