Minnesota Municipal Utilities Association

MMUA has budgeted $5,000 for its Tom Bovitz Memorial Scholarship Award program.

This program was created as a public relations tool to increase the awareness of public power and create goodwill in your city for your utility. The scholarship fund is split into various prizes and awarded to essay contest winners who plan to attend a post-secondary educational institution.

MMUA relies on its members to forward contest information to all their local high schools - public and private.

Here’s how it works: The local governing body of the utility picks a local winner. Every MMUA member may then enter the one local essay contest winner to the state contest. The deadline for having utilities forward local winners to MMUA isin mid-April. Local deadlines need to be set earlier, to allow the local governing board time to review the entries. Many members, with necessary local political support, award their own scholarships locally to encourage participation. The MMUA Communications/Member Services Committee will select the first, second, third and fourth place winners statewide. MMUA will announce the winners by mid-May.

Students can find resource materials at www.mmua.org, the American Public Power Association website, and often from the local utility.
