NAPERVILLE, Ill. — The City of Naperville, in partnership with the Illinois Municipal Utilities Association (IMUA), is again offering a scholarship competition for high school seniors, whose parents or legal guardians are residential customers of the Naperville Electric Utility.

Each eligible applicant is asked to submit an application and an essay of 500 words or less addressing their choice of one of four utility-related questions. The top four vote-getters in this year’s essay competition will receive a finalist certificate and a $1,000 scholarship from IMUA. Last year, Catherine Noelle Sorensen of Naperville was one of the scholarship winners. The deadline for submitting applications and essays is Friday, March 12, 2021. Applications are available at www.imea.org/IMUA_Scholarship.aspx.

The scholarship program has a dual purpose — to promote and recognize scholastic achievement and to create greater awareness among young adults of the many issues facing consumers and public power municipalities today.
