ALTON — The Exchange Club of Alton will provide a $500 scholarship through the national A.C.E. Award program.
The scholarship winner will be submitted to the district level for a chance at $2,000 award, and if successful they will automatically be submitted to National for a chance at a $10,000 scholarship.
The criteria for this award covers a wide variety of challenges a student may have faced and grades, although important, are not the most important issue. Anyone who is eligible and wishes to attend college or trade school is encouraged to apply.
The deadline for applications is Friday, April 10. The application can be found at Alton, Marquette Catholic, East Alton-Wood River, Roxana, Civic Memorial, Southwestern and Jerseyville high schools as well as Mississippi Valley Christian School and Hayner Library. The club has had several district winners in the past few years and says it hopes to add to that list.
