In an effort to encourage Utahns to use the state’s new transparency website and to promote responsible citizenship, high school students throughout the state of Utah are invited to apply for one of five $1,000 scholarships being offered by Sutherland Institute. Students, grades 9-12, may do so by submitting an essay on how to use information available on the new State website, www.transparent.utah.gov to improve Utah’s schools.
Students are encouraged to explain their experience using the website and how they believe the information on that website can lead to improving education. Students are also encouraged to include facts found on www.transparent.utah.gov and how those facts have impacted or are currently impacting their education.
