CLICK HERE FOR APPLICATION FORM & CONTEST INSTRUCTIONS
Township High School Juniors and Seniors who are planning to continue their
education beyond high school have an opportunity to win $1000 scholarship through
a state-wide essay competition.
Hamilton Mayor Kelly Yaede
is announcing the New Jersey State League of Municipalities’ Louis
Bay 2nd Future Municipal Leaders Scholarship Competition,
which seeks to promote the virtues of elected and volunteer members of local
government. The New Jersey League of
Municipalities is a non-partisan, voluntary association, which serves and
represents all of New Jersey’s 565 municipalities by working to help the cities
and towns of our state to better govern themselves.
Hamilton high school juniors
and seniors (including students who live in Hamilton and attend a high school
outside of the Township – i.e. a private school) that wish to participate in
the contest are asked to write an approximately 500-word essay focusing on the
theme of “What My Municipal Government Does Best.” The essay should be based upon the student’s
perceptions or experiences with, as well as the
public contributions of Hamilton Township Municipal Government.
From the essay submissions,
one Hamilton Township student’s essay will be chosen by a judging committee to
advance to the state semi-finalist round, where the League of Municipalities’
Scholarship Committee will select three winners. Each of the three state-wide winners will
receive a $1000 scholarship.
hope that many of our community’s high school juniors and seniors will take
full advantage of the Louis Bay 2nd Future Municipal Leaders
Scholarship Competition and an opportunity to earn a $1,000 scholarship. This year, I am hoping that one of our very talented
high school students will be among the three statewide winners of this
scholarship competition,” says Mayor Yaede.

forms to the Hamilton Township Municipal Building; Office of Mayor Kelly Yaede located
