Goleta Teen of the Year Scholarship Committee Taking Nominations

The program is open to high school juniors and seniors; forms are due Sept. 19.

The Goleta Teen of the Year Community Service Award Program honors students who display remarkable commitment to their community.

The program is sponsored by the Goleta Noontime Rotary Club and is considered an extensively rewarding experience for the young men and women candidates.

Students must live in area code 93117, 93111 or 93110, be a junior or senior and have a minimum GPA of 2.75. Participants will be accepted from San Marcos, Dos Pueblos, Laguna Blanca and Bishop Diego Garcia high schools.

The GTOTY program challenges candidates to represent different aspects of themselves by volunteering at Rotary events, writing an essay and giving an oral interview. Finalists receive scholarship awards as well as a donation in their name to a nonprofit they choose.   

The committee is now accepting nomination forms, due Sept. 19. Completed forms must be e-mailed, to [email protected], and faxed, care of Connie Burns. The fax number is 805.967.4741.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
