The dedicated supporters of the Lapeer County Tea Party are proud to announce the 2018 Danette Lowery Lapeer Tea Party Education Scholarship.  The intent of the scholarship is to engage students in a current event topic and promote those students financially in their quest for higher education. 
The competition for this $500.00 Education Scholarship is available to any Lapeer County resident graduating high school senior, attending classes in Lapeer County through public, private, parochial, or home-school settings, who has been accepted into a post-high school education program.  The scholarship is also open to currently enrolled post-secondary students that are residents of Lapeer County and attending colleges or trade schools for the purpose of higher education.  The competition is limited to those who have not previously won this Education Scholarship.
The topic for this year's essay is:
“Michigan electricity rates are too high; this increases costs for families and makes our economy less competitive.  Identify regulations that are driving up the cost of electricity in Michigan.  Provide examples of free-market, limited-government legislative solutions that will lower the cost of electricity in Michigan.”

Once written, entries will be submitted to the coordinator of the scholarship competition, and anonymously forwarded to a minimum of three independent judges.  The essays will be judged using many criteria including but not limited to creativity, specific ideas, accuracy of presented data, grammar, spelling, and punctuation. 
The scholarship award can be used for all college or trade school related expenses.  The award will be made to the college and student upon verification of enrollment. 
By submitting a scholarship essay entry, writers agree to all of the rules and guidelines herein. 
The scholarship committee looks forward to all student participation.  It is our honor to have the opportunity to review incoming essays for consideration.  If you have any questions or concerns regarding this scholarship, please contact:
