This year, four $1,000 scholarships will be awarded to graduating seniors - one student from each Hanover County Public High School. Applicants are assessed in multiple ways, in hopes of gathering a full picture of the student: an essay response, an outside recommendation, their activities and community involvement, any employment to date, their academic performance and their interest/potential in leadership or business.
Applicants should submit their application to their school Guidance/Career Office. Deadline for submitting applications has been extended to Friday, April 17, 2020.
Recipients of the Developing Community Leaders Award are recognized at their respective schools' Senior Awards Ceremonies. Then, students and their families are invited to attend our events in June or July to be presented with their checks - be sure to join us these months to congratulate them in person! Photos are shared here and on our Facebook page.
The Developing Community Leaders Award is made possible by the financial support of Camptown Charities and we are so very grateful for their continued partnership!
