Student tuition and life after high school can be costly for new adults. In 2022, the West Interlake Watershed District has decided to offer three scholarships of $500 to high school graduates to provide them with the opportunity of making these high costs more affordable. To participate in the scholarship, students were asked to write a two page essay on how the WIWD improves the enviornment. Together, the Executive Board decided which essays best describes the enviormental benefits of the watershed. To qualify, students must attend school located within the districts boundaries.
The WIWD would like to award Katirina Zotter from École Communautaire Aurèle Lemoine along with Shanly Sigfusson and Anna Osmond from Ashern Central School with the scholarships and congratulate them on their well written papers. Their essays reflected well the WIWD's purpose in trying to improve the environment.
