We are inviting High School
Seniors who are an ALSA member to apply for
one of two scholarships from the ALSA Youth
Scholarship Fund. These scholarships
will be awarded in May and recognized again at
the ALSA Grand National Championship Show held
each October. If you are interested in
applying, please fill in the application form
and give responses to all the questions on a
separate sheet of paper. You need to pay
close attention to the requirements and
directions for this scholarship. The
application must be postmarked no later than
March 15th of this year.
Please Become A Sponsor
See what your small donation
does for our youth!
As many of you
may already know, this scholarship is funded by
donations. ALSA gives out two scholarships
every year to two ALSA youth members.
As time goes on,
donations are unfortunately declining. We
need to receive donations annually from you, the
llama community, if this is going to be an
ongoing award. Otherwise we will not be
able to continue with this valuable program.
We encourage you to
become a sponsor of this program this
year. Please email the ALSA office for
information on how to make a donation to this
program. All donations, regardless of
size, are greatly appreciated.
