The New Jersey State League of Municipalities and I have an excellent scholarship opportunity for the High School Juniors and Seniors from the Borough of Riverdale/Pompton Lakes. We have teamed up to offer three $1,000.00 scholarships through the Louis Bay 2nd Future Municipal Leaders Scholarship Competition. This statewide scholarship competition centers on the theme "What My Municipal Government Does Best” and seeks to advance the virtues of elected and volunteer members of municipal government.
Many of the elected officials and appointed board members serve the Borough of Riverdale with little to no compensation. It is their altruistic desire to serve their community which compels them to public service. These officials, along with a cadre of dedicated professionals, are guardians of our hometown comforts and security. They give of their time and talents to help plan our community and preserve our way of life. They serve us year-round, every day and yet are hardly noticed. This scholarship competition will help rectify that, while encouraging our future municipal leaders.
Full details on the application process for this scholarship can be seen in the document below.
