Windsor Family Credit Union is now accepting submissions for their 2014 Harold Hewitt Scholarship.

The Harold Hewitt Scholarship was established in 2001 as a yearly contribution to the post-secondary education of youth in our community. Since 2001, organizers say over $70,000 has been presented to local youth.

This scholarship was inspired by the late Harold Hewitt, WFCU’s long term Director on the Board whose dedication to the community was an integral part of the Credit Union.

Windsor Family Credit Union plans to continue the tradition by presenting a total of $5,000 to 16 youth through the program this year.

Students enrolled in JK to Grade 12, are invited to tell WFCU, in no more than 250 words, “What contribution do you see yourself making to Windsor and Essex County, now or in the future?” For example, you may want to start your own business or run for political office, etc.

Selected submissions from each age category¬†will be chosen and the authors will be named recipients of WFCU’s 2014 Harold Hewitt Scholarship.

Three recipients from grades JR to grade 5 will receive $500, three from grades 3 to 5 will receive $200, three from grades 6 to 8 will receive $300, three from grades 9 and 10 will receive $400 and four from grades 11 and 12 will receive $500.

Harold Hewitt Scholarship submission forms are available to download by clicking on the link found here.

Deadline for submissions to be received by WFCU is Friday, April 18th, 2014 no later than 5pm.  Details as to delivery methods are available on the WFCU website.
