Radio stations offer high school scholarships
KCMV "Colorado's Mountain Voice" and KSMT "The Mountain," in conjunction with the Summit Foundation, have begun a monthly scholarship program for area high school students. The scholarship program will continue through May 2008. KCMV and KSMT are looking for exceptional high school seniors that give their time to the community.
The KCMV Community Connection Scholarship is designed to reward seniors in Summit, Grand, Routt, Moffat and Eagle counties for their community service. Each month, from December to May, we will award $1,063 to an exceptional senior who has made a difference in the community. In addition, KCMV will be awarding one graduating senior in the KCMV listening area with a $5,000 Agricultural Studies Scholarship to a community-minded student studying agricultural studies, veterinary medicine, ranching or forestry. Also, a $2,500 KCMV Vocational Scholarship will be awarded to a high school senior pursuing additional education for a vocational or technical career.
Students can apply by visiting their counseling office or downloading the application online at kcmvradio.com or ksmtradio.com.
Teen of the Month nominations sought
The Steamboat Springs Optimist Club is accepting applications for its Teen of the Month program. Area high school students can pick up applications from school counselors or call Rob MacCarthy at 871-7179. The Teen of the Month program culminates in a recognition dinner in May for all of the teens and their parents, and a scholarship is awarded to the student chosen as Teen of the Year.
