Paying It Forward
As we continue to find ways to promote sustainability and community, we are happy to share with you the Taste of Old Country "Pay it Forward" scholarship contest and fund that will be awarded April/May 2020 to graduating high school seniors going on to college, living in Prince William County, VA.
Here's how the program works:
For every Taste of Old Country bottle returned to be recycled, Taste of Old Country will contribute $1.00 towards the Taste of Old Country scholarship drive and will also send your bottles off to be recycled, thus paying it forward and also promoting sustainability. All money raised from Jan 2019 through May 2020 will then be awarded in the form of a scholarship to 3 selected Prince William County students graduating high school and going off to college. The selection will result from an essay contest that will take place in April of 2020, open to the first 50 Prince William Country High School students that apply. All essays will be reviewed by an independent committee comprised of 3 local Taste of Old Country patrons/volunteers, who will help determine the top 3 essay applicants. At the end of the contest year, the 3 selected students will receive 100% of the proceeds from our recycling program.
WITH YOUR HELP, THE MORE BOTTLES WE RECYCLE, THE MORE WE DONATE!
