Always try your best to work with deadlines. When I began to apply for scholarships and grants in high school and even college, I kept a special planner. That way, I knew exactly what to work with and how to manage my time more efficiently.

I wholeheartedly emphasize being genuine and sincere in your essays. It's one thing to answer a prompt for the sole purpose of trying to obtain an award and completely another by understanding if the prompt fits you in a way where you can sincerely express yourself and your needs. After all, this is the greatest factor the scholarship committee goes on by trying to distinguish those most deserving. It's one thing to have a 4.0, but another to show your love, passion, and dedication which helped you to earn it.

My advice is to not give up on applying for scholarships, even national scholarships. It may seem overwhelming and impossible to ever win a scholarship for which you are competing against students from across the country (that's certainly how I felt) but perseverance is important if you want to have success. No matter how many scholarships you don't win, never let that discourage you from continuing to apply.
