The Glengarry News - - The Opinion Page - BY SCOTT CARMICHAEL News Staff

The Glen­garry His­tor­i­cal So­ci­ety (GHS) is of­fer­ing a $300 schol­ar­ship to the lo­cal high school stu­dent who com­poses the best county-re­lated his­tory es­say.

“In the past, what we’d tra­di­tion­ally done was give a prize to one of the five high schools in the area each year, to give to a stu­dent there,” said GHS pres­i­dent Robin Flock­ton. “But this year, we wanted to try some­thing dif­fer­ent.” The es­say com­pe­ti­tion is open to all sec­ondary school stu­dents re­sid­ing in Glen­garry County. En­tries, be­tween 1,000 and 2,000 words, can be on any topic as­so­ci­ated with the his­tory of the county, since 1792, and must be sub­mit­ted by April 23, 2016.

Es­says can be emailed to Mr. Flock­ton via flock­[email protected], or by mail to: Glen­garry His­tor­i­cal So­ci­ety, Box 416, Alexan­dria, Ont., K0C 1A0.
