The Derby Public Library is now accepting submissions for its Annual Scholarship Prize of $500. It is open to all high school seniors living in Derby who are planning to further their education, regardless of where they go to school. In addition to the monetary prize, the winner’s name will be added to the Scholarship Prize Plaque located in the Young Adult department.
The Library Board of Directors will choose the winner based on an essay explaining the role of libraries in their life. High School Seniors may submit their entry directly to the Library Director now through Monday, April 1.
The annual award will be presented at the Library Board of Directors’ April meeting.
