The Michigan Mosquito Control Association (MMCA) presents an annual scholarship to encourage interest in mosquito control and to assist a student financially towards a higher education in Natural Science or a related field. Application form and instructions for the 2020 scholarship are available at the MMCA website. Winning essays can also be viewed on the MMCA website link. This year's first place winner was Macy Docken of St. Charles High School.
The 2020 essay topic is Natural Disasters and Mosquitoes. Natural disasters can have profound effects on mosquitoes populations. When writing the essay, focus on this broad topic, but feel free to further focus on the following: natural disasters and effects on mosquito populations or preventative mosquito control/mosquito control in the aftermath. Focus on what communities do to combat this threat beforehand, afterward, or both.
The essay is to be a minimum of four pages of text (plus bibliography), typed, double-spaced, 12-point font, and one-inch margins.
Deadline for submitting applications will be November 30, 2019. Please call Bay County Mosquito Control at (989) 894-4555 for more information.
