-A +A
The Auburn Area Democratic Club will award a $1,000 scholarship to a senior graduating from a Placer Union High School District high school this spring. Students must be planning to continue their education. Application forms are available from counselors at Del Oro High and are due in April. Applicants must submit either a 1,000 word essay, a slide show, a short film or a multi-media presentation about an issue of importance to American democracy. Applicants also need two letters of recommendation from a counselor, teacher, high school administrator or other sponsoring adult describing the student’s work for values such as diversity, privacy and choice, commitment to the Bill of Rights or health care for all citizens. “The purpose of the scholarship,” said Leslye Janusz, club president, “is to support the continuing education of a student who has demonstrated both a solid understanding of democratic values and a willingness to continue working to achieve them.”
