| The Board of Directors is please to announce the winners
of this year's scholarship awards:
United States Winners - 4 $1,750 scholarships
Canadian Winners - 4 $1,250 (US Funds) scholarships:
PURPOSE OF THE FUND:
A scholarship program for certain members of the Laborers' International
Union has been established as a living memorial to the late W. Vernie
Reed, General Secretary-Treasurer of the International Union.
Through the generosity of Brother Reed's friends and associates, a self
perpetuating fund will provide a program of yearly scholarships to assist
eligible worthy students in furthering their four (4) year undergraduate
education. The first award was made in the Spring of 1981. Scholarships
are usually awarded before July.
Those eligible are men and women and their dependents who are members
of local unions of the Laborers' International Union of North America,
located in the states of Alaska, Washington, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Wyoming,
Colorado, Nevada and Utah in the United States of America, and in the
provinces of British Columbia, Alberta, Manitoba and Saskatchewan in Canada.
To be considered, a student must be in good standing in the final year
of high school or the first and second year of college.
The exact nature and content of the scholarship program will be determined
on an annual basis by the Board of Directors. Whereas these scholarships
are for the members of the Laborers' International Union or their dependents,
announcements will be made in the "Laborer", a publication,
as well as to all Laborers' Local Unions throughout the region. The announcements
will explain the present annual program available and any specifics involved
There shall be no discrimination based on race, color, creed, national
origin, age, or sex in the selection process or the administration of
the scholarship program.

5. Extra curricular accomplishments
