This year, the city’s Juneteenth subcommittee is offering seven $500 scholarships.

The deadline for submissions is March 31. Entries, as well as contact information, can be sent online or in person to Oak Park City Hall.

The subcommittee will select and announce the winners during the June 16 celebration.
