ONYX began hosting a scholarship competition in 2014 and has granted funds to an Ottawa Township High School and Marquette Academy student each year since. To help fund the program, ONYX hosts an annual 5K run called the Scholarship Scoot. Proceeds from the event contribute to the following year’s competition.
The Scholarship scoot is a great way for ONYX to work with our community and help our youth continue to succeed! Each year our goal is to grow this event and raise the bar for our scholarship goals. With the combine efforts of local individuals and businesses, the Scholarship Scoot has continued to grant over $1000 to each student that wins our essay contest. The ONYX Scholarship committee reads through each essay until a winner from each school has been selected and the student is awarded in April at their ceremonies.
We hope you and your family can attend and make this years event even better than the last!
