  • Humble. Don't bring it up. You don't want to rub it in anyone's face. If you do, keep other people's feelings in mind.
  • Just act thankful because you should be. I would still congradulate everyone else, but don't be cocky. That is the worste thing to do.
  • You can chose to tell them just not in a bragging manner, you shouldn't have to hide your accomplishement. If they are true friends yes they may be bumbed but they shouldn't pooh pooh on you you (pardon the expression)
  • Be cool about it.
  • Be thankful that you received it and don't rub it in. There isn't anything wrong with being happy about it, but don't treat the others as if you are better than them.
  • Scream "Yeah!! With a big smile. Turn to the losers and point at each one and say "Whose your daddy, huh? Yeah!"
  • I would act how I always act. I'm not a show-off, but I would hope my true friends would be happy for me.
  • HUMBLE
  • I am not one to draw attention to myself so I wouldn't say anything about winning
  • The person, who is awarded a wonderful "prize" such as a scholarship, should be humble - yet very grateful. To even be considered for such an honor, apparently there HAD TO BE an oral presentation or some paperwork which was submitted. In the acceptance speech AND in the "thank you" note to the committee which made the ultimate decision, the recipient should briefly mention THE MAIN "hurdle" which was mentioned in the presentation or in the paperwork, to have that scholarship awarded to him or her. The acceptance speech shouldn't be any longer than 2 to 3 minutes. Thanks for asking your Q! I did my best to answer it. I hope the information helps. VTY, Ron Berue Yes, that is my real last name! Sources: My wonderful family! My terrific teachers, instructors, professors, mentors and coaches! The public speaking course I participate in. Many years ago I was awarded a scholarship. I wrote the "thank you" note. However there wasn't any ceremony of the actual scholarship presentation. "THE University of Hard Knocks" Also known as ("a/k/a") "life's valuable lessons".
  • act like yourself, and dont be too quiet about it - after all, what would piss you off more, losing to an rub-your-face-in-it-jerk, or to someone who looks like the scholarship doesnt actually mean anything to them?
  • a scholarship for what?
  • Wow, I would say you all really did work hard too for that and that is not in vain. I would actually have a lil gift for each as I invited them over for brunch the next morning. Its the passion we put into trying to reach that goal. But having that attitude will bring you very far and get you many good things in life. I say congratulations to all of you for that.
  • I wouldn't bring it up unless they did. Then I would thank those who congratulate me, express my gratitude for getting it and turn the conversation to how hard ALL of you worked for this reward and that you wish there were more scholarships available. The last part acknowledges that others worked their butts off but there was only one prize to be had. Oh, and congratulations :)
