Scholarship available from Genoa Area Chamber

Royalty is returning to Genoa for the 60th anniversary of the Genoa Days King and Queen Scholarship contest.

The Genoa Area Chamber of Commerce and member businesses recognize the importance of education, as well as the increasing costs that come with it. The King and Queen Scholarship contest is an opportunity to acknowledge community youth and provide them with financial assistance to reach their future goals.

All graduating Genoa-Kingston seniors as well as home and parochial school students who are residents of Genoa and Kingston (who would otherwise fall in school district boundaries) are eligible to apply for the scholarship that is provided by chamber businesses and organizations. Applications must be filled out and turned in by April 22. Applications can be found at http://genoaareachamber.com/.

The finalists will compete in judging from 6 to 7:45 p.m. June 5 – the first evening of Genoa Days – at Heartland Bank. Judging will be completed on the main stage in downtown Genoa at 8 p.m. where the 2019 Genoa Days King and Queen will be announced and each will be awarded $1,000.

For more information, call the chamber office at 815-784-2212 or email info@genoaareachamber.com.
