High school seniors awarded Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office scholarships

The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Foundation held its fourth annual youth scholarship fundraiser Sunday at the International Polo Club in Wellington.  

Ten high school seniors each received a $2,500 scholarship for their first year of college. Those scholarships are renewable for four years. 

A key part of the sheriff's foundation program is that in order to apply, each student must be nominated by a PBSO deputy.  

Every year the foundation awards $100,000 in youth scholarships.
