Our previous scholarship winners:
The Teen Enrichment Network awarded several local students college scholarships last spring. The scholarship contest was open to high school seniors in Fredericksburg, Spotsylvania, Stafford, King George, and Caroline. The students were asked to choose among the topics highlighted during TEN’s summit, “The Next Conversation.” The high schoolers were asked to discuss the opioid abuse crisis in our area and ways teen can help solve the problem in our community or to identify the signs of human trafficking and ways teens can prevent being lured into its trap. The students chose to create a public service announcement video, write an essay, or create a slide presentation.
