BRICK – The New Jersey State League of Municipalities is offering three $1,000 scholarships under a statewide essay competition on the theme of “What My Municipal Government Does Best.”
The Louis Bay 2nd Future Municipal Leaders Scholarship Competition requires applicants to write 500 words about their perceptions and experiences with their local government, said Brick Mayor John G. Ducey, who announced the scholarship opportunity locally on Thursday.
“Brick Township has many exceptional young students,” Ducey said. “I encourage all juniors and seniors to participate in this scholarship competition and show just how exceptional, talented and dedicated the young people of our community are.”
The scholarship is open to all high school juniors and seniors. A committee will select one essay from Brick Township as a semi-finalist. For more information, including where to download the application, visit www.bricktownship.net.
