Is the "Illinois Student Assistance Commission (ISAC)" legit?

I just received a letter from ISAC that states that I have been named a "2018-19 State Scholar", then some congratulations, and then stating that I can claim a "digital Illinois State Scholar badge" that I can put on my resume. I was happy and flattered to receive this, but I became suspicious... show more I just received a letter from ISAC that states that I have been named a "2018-19 State Scholar", then some congratulations, and then stating that I can claim a "digital Illinois State Scholar badge" that I can put on my resume.

I was happy and flattered to receive this, but I became suspicious when I read the 3rd paragraph of the letter. It said that I could call/email their "ISAC Call Center Representatives and ISACorps members" to "help with the college-going process".

I was just curious if anyone else can testify whether this letter is legit. I want it to be true, but I'm afraid that this is just another scam to flatter students then trick them into a rip-off program that just wants money. If this is legit, I'll throw it on my resume, but if it's a scam, I'll leave it off. Any thoughts? Thanks in advance.
Update: Quick Update: I just went to their website and, in order to get the badge, I need to set up an ISAC account with email, password, and security question. Suspicious much?
