The Optimist Club of New Dundee is accepting applications for its $1,500 Youth Appreciation Scholarship. The purpose of this scholarship is to recognize and reward young people who are helping others through volunteer service in their school, church or community. It is open to New Dundee area students who are graduating from high school this year and going on to post-secondary education.
Information and application forms are available online at the New Dundee Optimist Club website at www.newdundeeoptimists.ca. The application deadline is May 10, 2021.
The Optimist Club is looking for students who have volunteered their time and talents beyond the required forty hours. The scholarship does not depend on marks or financial need.
“We have established this award to encourage and recognize young people in our community who are involved in volunteer service,” said Scholarship Committee Chair, Beth Mehring. “Volunteer commitment enhances both the well-being of the community and of the volunteers themselves.”
