My Town: One essay away from $2,500

BELDING, Mich.—High school seniors may be just one essay away from earning a $2,500 scholarship to college.

Now through April 24, LAFCU is accepting applications for its 2015 Write to Educate scholarship contest.  Application forms are available on the credit union’s website here.  Two $2,500 scholarships will be awarded; one will go to a student attending Baker College of Owosso, the other goes to a student heading to Lansing Community College.

This year’s essay question is: how does social media change real life relationships?  The winners will be announced Friday, May 8.  Each winner will select one of the following four charities to receive a $500 donation from LAFCU:

  • American Red Cross
  • Capital Area Humane Society
  • Child Abuse Prevention Council of Shiawassee County
  • Greater Lansing Food Bank
