Congratulations to the 25 recipients of a $1,000 Flagstaff County Educational Scholarship!
This year, we awarded scholarships ($25,000 in total) to the 25 students who best answered the following open-ended question:
Flagstaff County is aware of an aging and declining population within our Region. Since 2001, we have seen a population decline of 7% and the median age of residents is 17% higher than the provincial average. To address these issues, our key strategic objective is to attract working age population and families to our Region.
Flagstaff County is seeking your ideas on how to encourage youth to return to the Flagstaff Region upon completion of their post-secondary education.
Please provide three detailed examples of potential opportunities, initiatives or strategies that you feel would encourage you and other youth to return to the Region.

Students receiving a $1,000 Flagstaff County Educational Scholarship this year are:
Best of luck to all of you in your studies!
