The 2016 Stanwood-Camano Community Scholarship Night Award Ceremony took place at the Stanwood High School Performing Arts Center at 7 p.m., Tuesday, May 31st.
This year, 111 graduating seniors received 214 scholarships totaling $149,150.
The community scholarship program was created to make it easier for students to apply for the many different scholarships offered by local sponors each year. The program made finding and applying for local scholarships much easier for students through the introduction of a standard scholarship application, a standard timeline, and a central coordination point for the appliction process. The community scholarship program also makes it easy for any individual, family, group or business to offer scholarships to local students without having to create an award process on their own.
