VENTNOR – Mayor Beth Holtzman and city Commissioners Lance Landgraf and Tim Kriebel have partnered with the New Jersey State League of Municipalities to offer three, $1,000 scholarships to area high school juniors and seniors.

The Louis Bay 2nd Future Municipal Leader Scholarship Competition centers on the theme, “What My Municipal Government Does Best,” and seeks to advance the virtues of elected and volunteer members of municipal government.

According to a release, many of the elected officials and appointed board members serve the City of Ventnor with little or no compensation. It is their altruistic desire to serve their community which compels them to public service. These officials, along with a cadre of dedicated professionals, are guardians of our hometown comforts and security. They give of their time and talents to help plan our community and preserve our way of life.

They serve us year round, every day and yet are hardly noticed. This scholarship competition will help rectify that, while encouraging our future municipal leaders, the release states.

Applications are due no later than March 9.
