Your Civic Association is pleased to announce the continuation of its Scholarship Award program for the Class of 2021 high school seniors who reside in Lakewood Forest.

The Scholarship Award program originated as a tribute to our area students who were injured or who died in a tragic nighttime bus crash on December 21, 1999. 

The Civic Association’s Scholarship Award program is primarily essay based, rather than GPA/class rank/academic merit based, or needs based. This is so every Lakewood Forest graduating senior can qualify and have an equitable shot at competing for a scholarship award. As the saying goes however, “you’ve got to be in it to win it.” We encourage all Class of 2021 students who live in Lakewood Forest to submit an entry.
