The Alliance for Community Partnerships (ACP) in cooperation with other community organizations, businesses and individuals has recognized the importance of Social and Emotional Learning, combined with Character Education in the development of our young people to become successful citizens in our community. To assist in this youth development, ACP is offering scholarships to Logan County graduating seniors who are planning to pursue a degree in the field of education. Scholarship recipients will submit an essay demonstrating their understanding of the concepts, techniques, and the importance of Social and Emotional Learning and Character Education in the classroom. Essays will be submitted to the ACP Scholarship Program. Information about this scholarship program is available on the ACP website at www.ACPmeeting.com. Social Emotional Learning and Character Education information is currently available on a multitude of websites. We would encourage students to explore these sites and gain additional knowledge about these concepts.
