The application package for the 12th Annual Randy Wicks Memorial First Amendment Scholarship is now available to graduating local high school seniors and students at College of the Canyons.

The Santa Clarita Valley Press Club will award the Wicks scholarship to a local graduating high school student who has chosen a First Amendment-related college major.

Additional scholarships may be awarded at the Press Club's discretion.

In addition to the scholarships for graduating high school students, the press club also offers a separate scholarship to students at College of the Canyons. The criteria and application for the COC scholarship are the same as those for students graduating from high school this year.

In 1997 through 2007, the Press Club awarded scholarships totalling $230,000 to a variety of local students. The money for this year's scholarships was raised by the Press Club and its Santa Clarita Valley Newsmakers of the Year dinner in February.

Applications can be picked up at The Signal, 24000 Creekside Road in Valencia or can be downloaded online at

The application deadline is May 19 by 5 p.m. Scholarship finalists will be interviewed the afternoon of May 22.
