For many years, the Business and Education Committee of the Watkins Glen Area Chamber of Commerce has offered a $1,000 scholarship to any graduating senior who is a resident of Schuyler County or attends Bradford, Odessa-Montour, or Watkins Glen Central School Districts.
To apply, students must complete an application and submit a response to one of the three topics selected by the committee by March 30, 2018. These topics are:
1) If you were to open a business in Schuyler County, what it be? Why? Where it would it be located? How would you cover the expenses of the business?
2) Who has been the most influential person in your life and why?
3) What are your thoughts on the evolution of the cell phone and/or social media?
Applicants may use one of three options to answer the topic questions: a 500-1500 word essay, a 3-5 minute video, and/or a slideshow (using Prezi or PowerPoint) of at least 12 slides.
Completed applications and accompanying responses must be submitted by March 30, 2018 to the Watkins Glen Area Chamber of Commerce, 214 North Franklin Street, Watkins Glen, NY 14891. For additional information, please contact Rebekah Carroll at the Chamber (607) 535-4300 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
