Are you, or do you know of a student graduating in 2022 who plans to pursue a post-secondary education? If so, they may qualify for the Olivia Jollota Memorial Trust Scholarship.
Olivia’s scholarship is not based on your academic achievements, it is based on the quality of your character. How have you helped your school and your community become better places to be? Show us in an essay what you do to be inclusive, accepting, non-judgemental, kind and compassionate – like Olivia did 💜
In addition to your amazing essay, please have two teachers/community members provide a letter of reference then email your application to firstname.lastname@example.org or ask your school to send it in. Best of luck to all who apply!
NOTE: Deadline for applications is May 15, 2022 for consideration.

Weighted Blankets are used to help those who experience Anxiety, Stress, RLS and Insomnia. These blankets are also used by individuals who have Autism, PTSD, ADHD as well as other sensory disorders. Like a firm hug, the deep pressure acts to calm the person under it. (The added weight sends a message to the brain to release neurotransmitters such as serotonin and dopamine to relax.)
