The Electronic Security Association maintains the Youth Scholarship Program, which will award scholarships to two children of active-duty police officers and firefighters. The first place winner will receive $7,500 to put toward their college education and the second place winner will receive $2,500. Awards are based on a combination of academic achievement, national test scores, extracurricular participation and an essay titled, “What it means to me to have my parent or guardian involved in securing our community.”
It wasn't easy, but ultimately, through our blind-judging process, we managed to choose our first-, second- and third-place essays. The winners will receive cash to help defray college expenses—$2,015 for first place, $750 for second place and $500 for third place, from SN&R and our generous sponsors, InterWest Insurance Services Inc., GiveBack2Sac and Gilbert Associates Inc.
