ELKS TEENAGER OF THE MONTH SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATION
The Oceano/Five Cities Elks Lodge #2504 selects an AGHS senior male and female each month based on achievements, character, leadership, service, citizenship and scholastics.

Monthly for the 22'23 School Year - Completed application should be submitted to Brianna.firstname.lastname@example.org. Students only need to apply once. If your application is not chosen in a given month, it will be considered for the following month. The sooner you turn in an application, the more opportunities you will have for selection.
