Students can obtain college scholarship money through the Elks' annual "Most Valuable Student" competition, sponsored and conducted locally by the Glen Burnie Elks, Broadneck Elks and Severna Park Elks.
Local winners participate at the state level and, if they reach the national level, can compete for $5,000, $3,000 or $2,000 per year for four years of college.
Last year, these winners from Glen Burnie Elks Lodge 2266 received $300 each:
* Kimberly Myers of Glen Burnie High School, who plans to major in chemical engineering at Rutgers University.
* Jennifer Dorr of Old Mill High School, who plans to major in business administration at the University of Maryland Baltimore County.
