Up to $20,000 of Carnival Proceeds Fund the Glen Ellyn Carnival High School Scholarship and Local Non-Profits

Tilt-a-whirls and cotton candy are just a few ways The Glen Ellyn High School Scholarship and local non-profits are funded.  A Scholarship and Grant program originally created by the Glen Ellyn Jaycees and later transformed into the Village Fair Committee, who awarded local students scholarship funds through the decades.
Congratulations to the Glen Ellyn Carnival Scholarship Recipients:

From 2021 proceeds, The Glen Ellyn Chamber of Commerce awarded $10,000 in high school scholarships May 2022. Consideration of students’ submitted applications were based on work ethic, volunteerism, essay answers and sense of community. Blind applications (omitting name, address & gender) were provided to two dedicated scholarship committees. Congratulations to all!
