Two Brant County residents have earned kudos and cash from the Brant District Women’s Institute.
Spokeswoman Sarah Caldwell says Tommy Kyle receives a first place $1,000 award and Carmen Gillyatt, receives $500 for being runner-up.
The Brant W-I, which is represented by local branches in St. George, Burford, Paris and Brant County, awards bursaries to students who illustrate leadership, community involvement and who are graduating secondary school and continuing their education at a university or college.
Caldwell says any Brant County students interested in applying for the 2019 Bursary Award Program, should check with their high school’s guidance department or local 4H representative for an application and criteria in April/May.
