Elks Lodge Student of the Month (local competition/scholarship) - 

The Elks Lodge Student of the Month Scholarship contest is now open.  Each month a $1000 scholarship will be awarded to an outstanding senior boy and senior girl who demonstrate exemplary standards. They should be well rounded with leadership, citizenship, service, and scholarship qualities. These students will be competing with applicants from high schools in the Caddo-Bossier area.  

The scholarships will be awarded for the months of September through April. Once an application is submitted, it will remain in the applicant pool for the year.  A copy of the application can be found below (you must access this announcement via Mrs. Miles' website to see the attachment).  Completed applications should be received at the lodge by the 10th of each month.
