(Thursday, April 27, 2017)

Oakdale High School Senior Students (95361 zip code) complete an Business/Vocational/ Ag  Scholarship Application for possible scholarship consideration through the Oakdale Chamber of Commerce.  Application deadline has been extended to Wednesday, February 15th, 2017. On Thursday, April 27, 2017 the Oakdale Chamber gives an opportunity to those students to job shadow with a business associate in the field they are interested in pursuing. A luncheon is held later that day at the Gene Bianchi Community Center (located at 110 S. Second Ave., Oakdale). During the luncheon, the participating students do a presentation on what they have learned from their mentor. A panel of judges evaluate their applications,  presentations, and their mentors also evaluate them to determine the highest scoring of the scholarships.

Six scholarships are offered totaling $4,000; four business and two agricultural. Have your student and/or a student you know apply. It’s a wonderful learning program that allows students an opportunity to see what they may want to pursue; all while having the opportunity to possibly be presented with a scholarship!
