BAYONNE – Mayor Jimmy Davis today announced the City of Bayonne’s participation in the Louis Bay 2nd Future Municipal Leaders Scholarship opportunity for local high school Juniors and Seniors.
“We’ve partnered with the New Jersey State League of Municipalities to include Bayonne students in this statewide scholarship competition,” Mayor Davis said.
The competition will result in three $1000.00 scholarship awards statewide. Those who enter will center on this year’s theme, “What My Municipal Government Does Best.”
“I’ve provided the Principals of both Bayonne High School and Marist High School information about the competition so that it can be effectively passed onto their student body,” Davis stated. “It is important that we impress the importance of good government, volunteerism, and servant leadership onto our youth.”
Bayonne’s local judges have been established by Mayor Davis as: Kenneth Kopacz, Principal of Washington Community School and Hudson County Freeholder; Thomas Cotter, Bayonne First Ward Councilman; and Samantha Howard, Bayonne’s Assistant Director of Community Development.
Local submissions are due by March 10, 2015. A winning entry will be established by April 2, 2015 and forwarded to the statewide judging committee as the representative semi-finalist. The final announcement of finalists and winners will be on or about May 5, 2015.
