Scholarship Opportunity for Chester Twp. High School Students
Three $1,000 scholarships are being offered through the Louis Bay 2nd Future Municipal Leaders Scholarship Competition.
High school juniors and seniors who live in Chester Twp. are invited to submit essays about their local government for a chance to win a $1,000 scholarship in the 2017 Louis Bay 2nd Future Municipal Leaders Scholarship Competition.
Each student must write an approximately 500-word essay on the theme, "What My Municipal Government Does Best." The essay should be based on the student's perceptions and experiences with Chester Township's local government. The essay should consider the public contributions of the mayor and governing body. The theme is chosen by the state League of Municipalities.
All essays must be received by March 10, 2017. Chester Twp. will select one essay to forward to the League of Municipalities in Trenton as a semi-finalist. The League of Municipalities will then choose fifteen finalists and 3 scholarships winners.
