Youth Focus

Pine River Valley Centennial Rotary Club chooses to focus on supporting youth. We do this by sponsoring the following programs:

Educational Scholarships

Each year, we make scholarships available for Bayfield and Ignacio High School graduates. We pledge up to $1,000 to each student who qualifies and plans to earn a 2- or 4-year degree. We encourage all students who need help paying for further education to apply; preference is given to families of first responders and the military.
