FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — The board of the Forsyth County Slugfest has announced plans to award as many as six students up to $1,000 in college scholarships for the fall 2014 term.

The financial grants will be awarded to help assist students with their unmet education expenses such as tuition, books and supplies.

Scholarships will be awarded to college students who reside in Forsyth County with special consideration for students who have participated in the Forsyth County Slugfest baseball tournament or the Forsyth County Parks and Recreation baseball and softball program.

To be awarded a scholarship, students must provide a written statement explaining why they should be considered along with a written recommendation from an instructor, coach, employer or community member.
