This scholarship giveaway is made possible by Jonesboro Pediatric Clinic.


The entry period for this contest runs from Friday, Mar 18, 2022 at Noon until Sunday, March 27, 2022 at Noon.

To enter, parents and/or guardians will visit The School of Yaya’s Fishes app, which is available through Apple’s App Store or through Google’s Play Store, then a leave comment on the corresponding Facebook post, sharing their opinion on the new app. Upon leaving a comment, the registering parent will be automatically entered to win one SAFE Swim Training scholarship, provided by SAFE Swim Foundation.

The contest winner will be drawn on Sunday, March 27, 2022 after 3 p.m. and announced and contacted by phone before close of business on Monday, March 28, 2022 at 6 p.m. Upon contact, a representative of The School of Yaya’s Fishes will work with the winning guardian to select a training schedule that will work for the student, family, and trainers.

This scholarship is valued at $500, based on the average four weeks of Survival Swim Training. Survival Swim Training sessions are everyday Monday through Friday in 10-to-15-minute sessions for the length of the student’s training. While the average length of training is four weeks, this timeline may vary, based on each student’s rate of improvement and task comprehension.

The winner of this scholarship will be selected at random from the pool of registrations.

This contest is open to all Northeast Arkansans 18 or older, who are in guardianship of any children that are, at minimum, able to crawl. This scholarship does not have an age limit.

Only one winner is permitted per household within 60 days of after a household has a winner.

The School of Yaya’s Fishes and SAFE Swim Foundation restricts winners to the immediately serviceable area only. Any means of transportation to redeem the scholarship will not be provided. The responsibility of cost to travel rests solely with the scholarship winner. Neither Terri (Yaya) Mommsen, nor a member of her Staff, will travel to provide lessons to a winning family. Survival Swim Training sessions must be performed at The School of Yaya’s Fishes facility.

No purchase necessary. This scholarship is not redeemable or transferable for cash. This scholarship is not retroactive and cannot cover the already-paid tuition of a student who has previously been through the program.

The School of Yaya’s Fishes, SAFE Swim Foundation, and Jonesboro Pediatric Clinic shall have no further responsibility in connection with the scholarship if the scholarship winner, for any reason, cannot or decides not to use any of the survival swim lessons provided.
