Scholarship Essay Contest -Louis Bay 2nd Future Municipal Leaders

February 04, 2020

Mayor Jack McNaboe Announces Scholarship Opportunity
Applications & Essays due March 11th

The Louis Bay 2nd Future Municipal Leaders Scholarship Competition is open to High School Juniors and Seniors who live in Manalapan Township.  Students are invited to submit essays about their local government for a chance to win a $1,000 scholarship! 

The scholarship is offered through a joint venture between local mayors and the New Jersey League of Municipalities.  The contest is open to any High School Junior or Senior who lives in Manalapan.  Each student must write an approximately 500-word essay on the theme, "What My Municipal Government Does Best."  The essay should be based on the student's perceptions and experiences with Manalapan Township local government.  The essay should consider the public contributions of the Mayor and Township Committee.

Mayor Jack McNaboe hopes that our students will take full advantage of the annual Louis Bay 2nd Future Municipal Leaders Scholarship Competition, not only to gain a better understanding of public service through local government, but also to enjoy the opportunity of earning a $1,000 scholarship.

All essays must be received by March 11, 2020.  Manalapan will select one essay to forward to the League of Municipalities in Trenton as a semi-finalist.  The League of Municipalities will then choose fifteen finalists and three scholarship winners.  Winning essays will be featured in the New Jersey Municipalities Magazine.  Scholarship participants will be recognized at a future Township Committee Meeting.

Applications are available below, and in the Mayor's office, located at 120 Freehold Road, Manalapan, NJ.
