Lompoc Odd Fellows Extends North County Scholarship Competition Until July 31
The contest – where the winning essayist will receive $ 1,000 – has been extended and entries are being accepted until July 31.

âWe wanted to give the graduates of the competition another chance by extending the deadline until the end of July; and we’ll announce a winner in early August, âBenton said.
This year’s competition will ask new graduates to express in at least 300 words what friendship means to them in light of the pandemic.
âThe Odd Fellows are all about friendship, and for us it’s more important than ever,â said Benton. “This year, we’re asking senior graduates going to college if they think differently about friendship now that the pandemic has been going on for over a year and we’re finally starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel.”
College-related students and their parents can access the competition rules and steps to participate in lompocoddfellows.com/essay.
