Four deserving youngsters are getting some extra change as they venture beyond the secondary school level.
Every year, the RM of Wilton Council awards four $1000 scholarships to graduating students that live within the Municipality.
This year the hardworking foursome are Emma McLauchlan, Tillie Jones, Samantha Kenyon and Brant Stephens.
Applicants are evaluated and scored on industry of choice, financial need, academic achievement and community citizenship. Priority weighting is based on industry along with community citizenship.
In congratulating the recipients, Wilton Council acknowledged the increasing cost of education and welcomed the opportunity to support future community leaders.
