The 2020 Town of Fairplay/Burro Buster 5K Scholarship applications are now available.

The Town of Fairplay is pleased to offer $1,000 in scholarship monies to a 2020 South Park High School graduating senior or a 2020 Fairplay area homeschooled graduating senior. The scholarship funds are earned from the race registration fees for the Burro Buster 5K during the town’s Independence Day celebration each year.

Scholarship applicants are required to fill out an application, and write a 400-word essay. Applicants must also be pursuing a post-high school education at a two-year or four-year college or university, or at an accredited post-secondary technical or vocational training institution.

The recipient must use the scholarship within one year from the date awarded or it will be forfeited.

Applications may be picked up at South Park High School, Fairplay Town Hall, at 901 Main Street, or accessed from the town website under documents and forms.
