The CNY chapter is proud to announce the winner of our 1st Annual Scholarship Award. Russell Smith, of DeRuyter, NY will be awarded $250 toward his college education. Russellís application will also be forwarded along with other local chapter awardees to the State Chapter. One of the local chapter awardees will be chosen for an additional $1000 State Chapter Award. The winners at the state level then are reviewed at the National level with one student chosen for an additional $5000. Russell has been accepted at SUNY ESF for Fall 2000 session. His credentials were so impressive that SUNY ESF accepted him as a freshman student (normally they accept students with 2 years of college). Check will be presented at his high school graduation. We expect this program to grow, and the competition to increase as well (we had 3 well qualified candidates this year) Check out the link below, and be sure to enter in time for 2001
