The Madison County Democratic Party is sponsoring its third annual Good Citizenship Award. Four scholarships will be given to one student from each of the Madison County public high schools, Jonathan Alder, London, Madison-Plains and West Jefferson.

This is a unique monetary award as the funds may be used for any education beyond high school, including vocational education, apprenticeships, college, correctional officer training and/or technical school. This is a non-partisan award. If the senior is 18 years of age, he/she must be a registered voter.

“We want to encourage young people to become involved, educated citizens and voters,” stated Debbie Cochran, chair of the scholarship committee.

Applicants are asked to complete a 500 word essay or multimedia presentation, not to exceed five minutes. Topics may include an inspiring political or historical figure, volunteer work for a political campaign, an area nonprofit or local organization, a community service project or experience at Buckeye Boys or Girls State.

Deadline for submissions is Tuesday, March 15.

School guidance counselors, at each high school, can provide an application for the Madison County Democratic Party Good Citizenship Award or call Denise Worthington, 740-852-5783 or email: maggiew57@hotmail.com.
