The Sonny’s Kids Scholarship Essay Contest
Each year, Sonny’s Kids oversees a scholarship competition based on a topic chosen by the Sonny’s Kids Foundation, Inc. Board of Directors. The scholarship competition is announced annually at the Montgomery County Boys & Girls Club Holiday party celebrations in Silver Spring and Germantown, Maryland, which Sonny’s Kids sponsors. The scholarship awards are made in May each year, and the winners are awarded scholarships of $5,000, $2,500 and $1,000 to further their education.

To date, Sonny’s Kids Foundation has contributed $8,000 to underwrite the annual Holiday Party at the Montgomery County Boys & Girls Clubs in Silver Spring and Germantown; $49,500 in Annual Scholarships. A $500 contribution to Montgomery County Crime Solvers was made in Sonny’s memory.
