Class rank/size
Proficiency test scores (STAAR, etc. - whatever standardized testing system is used

TWO letters of recommendation; one from a community leader and one from a high school instructor.
One (1) recent photo (if a professional photo is not available, even a cell-phone selfie will be accepted, if a better-quality portrait is unavailable). This is important for the presentations at the Chamber of Commerce Banquet.
