The Winston Farm Alliance is offering its annual $1,000 scholarship opportunity to each of two graduating seniors and encourages all seniors to apply.  Applications can be picked up in the Guidance Office.  The Alliance was founded in the 1980’s by a broad coalition of Saugerties residents who successfully fought the siting of a countywide Mega-Dump at the Winston Farm on Route 32.  The Alliance initiated the annual scholarship program over a decade ago as a way of fostering citizen activism and a concern for environmental stewardship among our town’s students.  Over the years, the scholarships have been awarded to graduates whose school and volunteer activities included recycling, town cleanups, energy reduction, and numerous conservation activities.
