CLARK COUNTY — The Clark County Park District and the Hertzler House Advisory Committee is offering 10 scholarships to any Ohio fourth and fifth grade students to participate in the 2014 version of its “Living History DAY Camp” to be held in George Rogers Clark Park June 23, 25, and 27.
Each participant travels back to 1854 and follows in the footsteps of children of that era. The day includes cooking their own lunch, keeping up with chores, playing games, and making crafts.
Ten $25 scholarships will be awarded to qualified winners who are first selected by their classroom teacher or home school teacher. All students are eligible to attend this program including those from public or private schools as well as those who are home schooled. This scholarship is open to any fourth or fifth grader in the state of Ohio.
To be selected, the student must write a 200 word essay about the history of Clark County, Ohio or about George Rogers Clark. The essay must be submitted to the teacher (or parent) by April 1. The teacher will forward their best essays (not more than 10) to Barbara Arnold, Day Camp Coordinator, by April 15.
The Hertzler House Committee will then select the 10 best essays to receive the $25 scholarship which covers the tuition for an entire day at camp (food, crafts, games, etc.). The students may choose to attend either June 23, 25, or 27, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Essays must be in blue or black ink or word-processed and include a title sheet with the student’s name, school, full home address, phone number, email address (if available) plus a title. If the internet or other research material is used, it must be documented in an informal bibliography. Essays must be in the student’s words, not copied.
Questions may be addressed to Barbara Arnold , chairman at 937-864-1046 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
