Scholarship

Stoughton Conservation Club gives out scholarships to deserving children of Club members. A big “thank you” goes out to the membership who attend the Scholarship Banquet and make it a success. Without your support, the scholarship program would not continue, let alone achieve the success it has.

As of 2006, we’ve given out over 40 scholarships to Children of Club members. The annual banquet where these scholarships are awarded is usually held in early August. Along with the excellent meal and awarding of scholarships, attendees are usually treated to raffle prizes that range from fine art prints to firearms to cash (always the perfect gift) to decoys to stunning hand-made quilts. There is always something for everyone to lust after.

A good segue to a huge “Thank You” to the people who donate the raffle prizes. As always on The Web, we’ll leave names off, but these are included in your Newsletter. So look, read and don’t forget to patronize the establishments of these fine folks.

Applications for scholarships is May 1st every year, so put it on your calendar. To be eligible, you need only be the college-bound child of a member in good standing in The Club. If you’re looking for applications, they’re linked here as a (PDF).

Kid's Fisheree

In the beginning of Summer, SCC always put on The Kid’s Fisheree. It’s basically a fishing contect for kids, and includes a lot of great prizes for almost all of them. It’s usually held in early June with a rain date of the following day. Kids up to 14 years old can join in on the fun (and LOTS OF PRIZES)!

All entrants are divided into four age classes, and each class will be awarded a 1st, 2nd and 3rd place prize each for the biggest Pan fish, Rough fish and Game fish. (That’s a lot of prizes!)

1st place awards are rods and reels, 2nd place awards are tackle boxes, and 3rd place awards are fish nets or baskets. Registration opens at Division Street Park (near the Forton Street bridge) at 8:30 am, fishing from 9 to Noon'ish. We usually run everything CATCH & RELEASE, so make sure your kids have a nice big bucket so their fish can swim in some water until they’re weighed and released. Final weigh-in is the Noon ending time. Winners will be announced and prizes awarded by 12:30.
