No applicants from urban schools (e.g., GRPS, Wyoming), only from well-off exurban districts?

Thank you for your comment. We distribute to all school districts in Kent, Ottawa and Kalamazoo counties. This year we received 205 essays from 40 different schools. The judges do not see names or school districts when judging content,so they do not know where the essays originate. We try our best to get the word out to everyone in the communities we serve via school visits by all of our branch managers, radio, website, our LMCU Newsletter, Facebook and Twitter as well as in-branch signage.

Thank you for providing this opportunity! Not only are the winners of the Hutt Scholarship rewarded, all students who responded with an essay honed their writing skills, participated in something larger than themselves, and were engaged in thought and dialogue. I anticipate and appreciate this each year.

Thank you for continuing to provide this support for local college bound students. Our son was a winning applicant years ago (from an urban-center school) and the application experience and award were both of great value. I wish more students would apply.
