The BCYCNA, in partnership with the BC Press Council, distributes $10,000 in scholarships annually to graduating high school students across B.C. and Yukon Territory.

Scholarships of $5,000, $3,500 and $1,500 are awarded to the three students who write the best 500-word essay answering the question:
  • "How can community newspapers utilize their websites to better serve and engage their young readers?”"

How To Apply:
  • The essay, along with school and contact information, must be submitted to the student's local community newspaper (click here for a list of our member papers). The local winner's submission will be forwarded to the BC and Yukon Community Newspapers Association for judging.

Finalists' essays are judged on:
  • originality & creativity, writing ability (including spelling and grammar), and content (including demonstrating knowledge of the community newspaper industry).
Eligibility:
  • Any graduating high school student is eligible to apply, regardless of their intended program of study, but they must be planning to attend a post-secondary institution.

DEADLINE:
