Three schol­ar­ships of $1,000 each will be awarded to a stu­dent from each of the lo­cal high schools — Al­covy, East­side and New­ton. The schol­ar­ship fund has a lo­cal board and is ad­min­is­tered by The Com- mu­nity Foun­da­tion.

For a con­tri­bu­tion of $100 that is tax de­ductible, the New­ton Re­cre­ation Com­mis­sion will make a sign with the com­pany’s name or in­di­vid­ual’s name. The sign will be placed on a green at the Oaks Golf Course. To spon­sor a team of two, the fee is $150.

The reg­is­tra­tion cost is $150 per team (two-man scram­ble). It in­cludes a cart, greens fee, lunch and prizes.
