The following was submitted by the Medford Historical Society:

The Joseph V. Valeriani Scholarship is given to Medford High School Seniors who best exemplify the legacy of Dr. Joseph V. Valeriani, former MHS teacher and past President of the Medford Historical Society.  The award seeks students with a demonstrated interest in Medford history, an intellectual or hands-on interest in historic preservation and a desire to pursue the study of history in a college or university, or to apply construction or horticultural skills to the preservation of historic properties. This year, the Joseph V. Valeriani Scholarship Committee will award a $500 book gift certificate or $500 cash to the student with the winning essay. Medford High School Seniors who are interested in applying for this scholarship should submit their name, address, and an 800-word essay considering the following question:

"The year 2011 is the 150th anniversary of the start of the American Civil War. Celebrations will continue through to 2015 when the anniversary of the end of the War will be recognized.  In your own words, write an 800-word essay on why this War should be remembered and how the Medford Historical Society should celebrate this event over the next four years." 

All essays will be reviewed by the Historical Society’s Joseph V. Valeriani Scholarship Committee.  The Committee reserves the right not to award the scholarship or to split the award among two or more applicants.  The Committee’s decision is final.  Essays and application should be emailed to mhsqueries@yahoo.com with the subject line “Joseph V. Valeriani Scholarship Essay”

Deadline: June 10, 2011
