The Friends of Tigertail Beach Organization (FOT) awarded its Second Annual Summer Camp Scholarships. Ten Tommie Barfield Elementary students submitted essays on Southwest Florida’s ecology and natural resources to the FOT’s Scholarship Committee. The Committee selected two fourth grade winners, Alyssa Kirstein and Tyler Shute. The winning essays were shared with the FOT Board of Directors who found them to be on target and most delightful.
Alyssa and Tyler will enjoy a full week-long scholarship to the Conservancy of Southwest Florida’s summer camp. The topic for the camp week, “AquaticExplorations,” will center on studying the exploration of marine life, along with exciting games and crafts. Congratulations to both winners and future conservationists!
