WCLT announces Earth Day Essay Contest and scholarships

Westborough – The Westborough Community Land Trust (WCLT) announced two scholarships of $1,000 each, to be awarded to the winners of its annual Earth Day Essay Contest. This contest is open to all graduating Westborough High School (WHS) seniors, as well as to graduating seniors who reside in Westborough but attend a different high school. The contest runs Monday, March 2 to Wednesday, April 1.

Essays should be 500-750 words and address one of these three topics: an environmental issue in Westborough, an experience or place in Westborough, or protection of Westborough’s natural heritage and special places. Seniors do not need to be planning an environmental emphasis in their future studies or career in order to be eligible for the contest and scholarships.

To apply, WHS seniors can obtain contest details and scholarship forms from the WHS guidance office as of March 2. Seniors must submit their essays and applications to the WHS Guidance Office no later than April 1.

Graduating seniors who reside in Westborough and attend a different high school can obtain details and forms online at the Westborough Community Land Trust website, www.westboroughlandtrust.org. They must submit their essays and applications by mail to the following address, to be received by April 1: WCLT, P.O. Box 838, Westborough, MA 01581.

WCLT urges Westborough residents to tell their friends and neighbors about the Earth Day Essay Contest and WCLT scholarships.
