ADEQ scholarship deadline looms

KINGMAN - Time is running out for high school seniors to get their shot at $1,000 for college.

Students must submit a proposal by Feb. 6 outlining a waste reduction or recycling project in their school or community to the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality.

The proposal will be implemented in the students' area during March 2009.

The ADEQ is offering 10 scholarships of $1,000 each to high school seniors as part of their 2009 Arizona Recycling Scholarship Program. The moneys will go to pay for education at a college or university in Arizona.

"We initiated this program in 2006 to promote awareness of the three R's: Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle," said ADEQ Director Steve Owens in a news release, "The response has been tremendous every year since because of the keen interest among students in the environment and the high quality of the proposals we have seen."

All Arizona high school students in their senior year are eligible to apply for the scholarship.

The 10 scholarship recipients will be selected by ADEQ based on the proposals submitted. Scholarship winners will be announced on Feb. 20.

The scholarships can be used for expenses at a college or university in Arizona. The ADEQ will provide scholarship funds to the students after receiving proof of enrollment at a community college or university within the state of Arizona.

In 2008, former Kingman High student Kathryn Ross was selected to receive the scholarship.

Funding for the scholarship program will come through the ADEQ Recycling Grant Program.

The scholarship package and informational materials are available on ADEQ's Web site at http://www.azdeq.gov/environ/waste/solid/program.html.
