This year’s winners are Rene Ouellette, Rebecca Ouellette and Andrew Deering. Renee is a senior at the University of Maine at Augusta, and Rebecca is a junior at the University of Maine at Farmington. Deering is a freshman at Maine Maritime Academy in Castine.

The Scholarship Committee is composed of VFW Post and Auxiliary members.

The recipients are chosen in a random drawing from the names submitted.

The winners must attend an accredited school, and awards are given at the beginning of the second semester. Applications are available for next year’s scholarships at the post or by contacting Scholarship Chairman Fred Jackman at 897-4261.
