Creative Thinking Earns Cash for College $500 scholarships available for teens in Kiwash Electric territory


smart phone and a little ingenuity could win college scholarships for teens who enter


Kiwash Electric’s scholarship contest.


The competition encourages teens to ponder the seven cooperative principles that guide all co-ops, and either create a video or craft a 500-word essay on the topic. Complete contest rules are available online at www. kiwash.coop, under Our Communities.


Lisa Willard, coordinator of the scholarship program, says the contest encourages local teens to delve deeper into the cooperative business model. “We want to see that they truly understand what we mean we say there is a cooperative difference,” says Willard.


By allowing contestants to enter a written essay or a short video, they enjoy more freedom to express themselves. “We’ve seen some great entries,” Willard recalls. “One year, a contestant wrote a song and filmed himself singing. He won.”


This year, Kiwash Electric will award four $500 scholarships to seniors graduating from high schools that are served by Kiwash Electric. The applicant’s parent or parents must belong to the co-op.


Willard also pointed out that scholarships may be used at any two- or four-year college, university, or technical school. “If a teen wants to attend vo-tech or any other career training program, this scholarship will help them do that,” she added.


Video and essay entries must be delivered by 5 pm on April 15, 2015. For more details, visit www.kiwash. coop or contact your high school counselor. To visit with Lisa Willard, please call 888-832-3362.
