State county clerks offer scholarship

Tuesday, March 9, 2010

The Kansas County Clerks and Election Officials Association is taking scholarship applications from those students that are majoring in journalism, political science or communications. The scholarships are available to high school seniors or college freshmen and sophomores.

Due to the joint efforts of the county clerks, Secretary of State's office and the Voters News Service, the scholarship committee will award 10 scholarships in the amount of $500 each.

Applications may be picked up at area schools or county clerk's offices. Applications must be returned to local county clerks or mailed to Inge Luntsford, 130 N. Spruce, Kingman, Kan., 67068 no later than April 2, 2010.

Scholarship winners will be announced in May at the County Clerks and Election Officials Association seminar.
