Deptford Township has teamed up with the NJSLM to offer three $1,000 scholarships through the Louis Bay 2nd Future Municipal Leaders Scholarship Competition. This statewide scholarship competition this year centers on the theme: “What My Municipal Government Does Best” and seeks to advance the virtues of elected and volunteer members of the municipal government.

Many of the elected officials and appointed board members serve the municipality for little or no compensation. It is an altruistic desire to serve their community which compels them to public service. These officials, along with a cadre of other dedicated professionals, are the guardians of our hometown comfort and security. They give their time and talents year-round to help the community and preserve our way of life.

The competition is open to all high school juniors and seniors who are residents of New Jersey and plan to continue their education after high school.

The deadline for submission is March 11, and more information as well as the application can be found on the Deptford Township website.
