Jewish Family and Children’s Service of Greater Mercer County is accepting applications for the Rose & Louis H. Linowitz Mensch Award until March 6.
The award is merit-based. Jewish eighth-graders and high school seniors living in the greater Mercer County area are eligible for the award.
Candidates should exemplify what it means to be a mensch – a person of integrity and honor, a doer of good deeds, and an all-around good person. Students must be nominated by a member of the community such as a rabbi, educator, youth group advisor, school guidance counselor, or teacher. Eighth-grade Mensch-In-Training and high school senior Mensch Award winners will receive prizes up to $500 and $3,000 respectively. This is not a need-based scholarship.
Selected winners are required to attend a recognition event to receive their award on April 17.
