Our previous scholarship winners:

Since 2017, the Teen Enrichment Network has awarded 9 scholarships totaling $7,500 to students from Fredericksburg, King George, and Spotsylvania. Topics for the scholarships are normally based on the spring summit theme and have included the positive and appropriate uses of social media, the opioid crisis in our area, signs of human trafficking, the 8 dimensions of wellness, and diversity.

Our most current recipient was M’Kayla Ainsworth, class of 2020, who created a PSA on Diversity which can be seen HERE.

A big thank you and shout out to all our entrants. We are always amazed and blessed by what we receive. You don’t make the selection easy.
