The Granby Democratic Town Committee (DTC) is accepting applications for $1000 scholarship awards to recognize a Granby student, or students, who best exemplify our mission, Making Granby a Better Community, and who have demonstrated engagement in the political process.

As a part of the scholarship application, students are asked to prepare an essay or multimedia presentation on the following topic:

“The second amendment of the Constitution of the United States was based on English common law and was adopted December 15, 1791. It reads ‘A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.’ Consider the perspective of the original proponents of this amendment, (James Madison, James Monroe and John Adams) and then discuss your interpretation and how you think this amendment should be applied today.”
