American Pole and Timber Announces Scholarship Award Winners For Spring 2015 Semester
United States (PRUnderground) May 21st, 2015
This year marked the launch of the American Pole and Timber Scholarship, and the first winners have been selected. APT asked the question, “In what ways can the increased use of wood and wood-derived building materials in construction make the most positive impacts on the environment in next 35 years (by 2050)?” Responses came from all over the country, in many different and creative formats, with various ideas and concepts.
After careful consideration two winners were chosen to receive the APT scholarship in the amount of $500 each. American Pole and Timber would like to congratulate:
-Amos Pudsey, American University
-Christopher Gallegos, Harvard University
These candidates’ research, time, and attention to detail stood out, and the information provided supported their ideas. APT will be featuring their work, along with many others, on the their website, www.americanpoleandtimber.com, within the coming months.
APT urges future interested students to check their website often for other scholarship opportunities, as APT will continue to support students and the advancement of wood and wood-derived building materials.
