Two $500 scholarships are being offered by the Sugar Grove Corn Boil committee to honor longtime Corn Boil officer and committee member, Donna Markus. One will go to a female and one to a male.

The scholarship application deadline is Friday, June 13. It will be presented to the winner at the Corn Boil opening ceremony on Friday, July 25.

The committee is seeking two enthusiastic Sugar Grove volunteer students who have educational goals and desires to help others. Although grades are important, the committee is looking to honor well -rounded, community spirited students. Scholarship requirements are that the students must be residents of Sugar Grove and current volunteers of the Sugar Grove Corn Boil, Sugar Grove Public Library or be a Sugar Grove 503(c)(3) volunteer.

The students must have maintained at least a 2.0 grade-point average throughout his/her most recent two years of school; be able to demonstrate a relatively trouble-free last few years; and be able to produce three character references from a parent, teacher and nonfamily friend.

Scholarship applications must be submitted by June 13 to Donna Markus Scholarship, P.O. Box 225, Sugar Grove, IL 60554.
