Soroptimist of Oak Harbor seek nominations for three scholarships due in December

Soroptimist International of Oak Harbor is seeking nominations for scholarships in several categories with a Dec. 1 or Dec. 15 deadline.

These are available to women with primary financial responsibility for their families to obtain the skills, training and education necessary to improve their employment status and standard of living for themselves and their families.

Guidelines and applications are available at www.soroptimist.org/awards/awards.html or can be picked up at the club’s Upscale Retail shop at 31780 Highway 20 Suite 3. The Soroptimist Violet Richardson Award is a recognition program for young women ages 14 to 17 engaged in volunteer action within the community or their school.

The award is given to young women whose activities make the community and world a better place. The Violet Richardson Award program begins at the local Soroptimist club level where the recipient and her volunteer organization will be honored with a monetary award. Club level winners then become eligible for either $500 or $1,000 at the region level. One finalist will be chosen from among the 28 region winners for an additional award.

Nominations are due to the Oak Harbor club today. For an application, contact sioakharbor@soroptimist.net or call Sandee Oehring at 360-279-5801.

The Soroptimist Ruby Award honors women who have worked to improve the lives of women and girls through their professional and/or volunteer work.   Nominations for the award are due Dec. 15.
