CalaverasGROWN awarded two $500 scholarships to high school seniors Olivia Dawe from Calaveras High School and Marleen Wakefield from Mountain Oaks Charter School this year.

The requirement was to submit a 500-word essay on: “How can we make Calaveras County attractive for young people to stay in and or return to? Provide and explain in detail at least one concrete way that Calaveras County’s organizations, schools and/or government could work to attract more young people to live and work in our agricultural community.”

The entries can be read at calaverasgrown.org.
