Mayor Dennis Sullivan announced the Louis Bay II Future Municipal Leaders Scholarship Competition, on Wednesday, Feb. 1. Sponsored by the New Jersey State League of Municipalities and open to all high school juniors and seniors, the competition centers on the theme “What My Municipal Government Does Best.”
Application Deadline is Friday, Mar. 10
Entrants are required to complete an application and write an original essay for submission to their hometown mayor by March 10, 2023. Submissions will be judged by a local panel selected by the mayor, with one entry from each town sent to Trenton to compete for one of three statewide $1,000 awards. Winners will be announced on May 5, 2023.
“If you attend Somerville High School or Immaculata High School, forms are available at your school’s main office,” said Mayor Sullivan. “If you live in Somerville and attend an out-of-town high school, please call me at 908-907-4319 to arrange a pickup. Somerville has produced two state semi-finalists in the past few years, and I look forward to equaling or even bettering that record this year. I know the talented and creative youth of our community are up to the challenge."
