Mayor Jack McNaboe Announces Scholarship Opportunity

Future Municipal Leaders Scholarship Contest Open to

High School Juniors and Seniors in Manalapan Township

High school juniors and seniors who live in Manalapan are invited to submit essays about their local government for a chance to win a $1,000 scholarship in the 2018 Louis Bay 2nd Future Municipal Leaders Scholarship Competition.

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 the Manalapan local government. The essay should consider the public contributions of the mayor and governing body.

Mayor Jack McNaboe said “I hope that many of our community’s high school juniors and seniors 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 to also enjoy the opportunity of possibly earning a $1,000 scholarship,”.

All essays must be received by March 16, 2018. 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 3 scholarships winners. Winning essays will be featured in the New Jersey Municipalities magazine.

Applications are available on the Township website at and at the Mayor’s office, located at 120 Freehold Road, Manalapan NJ.
