IMUA scholarship applications available

LADD — The village of Ladd, in partnership with the Illinois Municipal Utilities Association (IMUA), is again offering a scholarship competition program for eligible high school seniors.

Each eligible applicant is asked to submit an application and an essay of 500 words or less addressing their choice of one of three utility-related questions. Applicants must be high school seniors whose parents or legal guardians are residential customers of the village of Ladd’s municipal utility. The deadline for submitting applications and essays is March 8.

A committee of municipal utility officials will select a total of four finalists, each of whom will receive a certificate and $500 scholarship award. Application forms are available in the village clerk’s office. Applicants may contact the IMUA for more information at 217-789-4632.
