The Lake George Land Conservancy is offering the first of what will be annual scholarship awards totaling $1,000 given to high school seniors and the winning student’s school science program.
Eligibility is restricted to high school seniors, including home-school students, whose school district lies mostly within the Lake George watershed — Bolton, Lake George and Ticonderoga central school districts. One $500 first-place and one $250 second-place prize will be awarded and an additional $250 will be awarded to the first-place student’s school science program.
To apply, students must submit an essay between 1,000 and 2,000 words addressing this year’s question: “If you were elected the Wizard Mayor of the Lake George watershed, what would your first three projects be and why?”
Essays must be received by April 1 and should be submitted via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
A sub-committee of the Lake George Land Conservancy board of directors and staff will determine the first and second place winners. Essays will be judged on demonstrated knowledge of Lake George and creativity. Award decisions will be announced by June 1.
