OGDEN — Soroptimist International of Ogden, a volunteer organization, is seeking to recognize women who are the primary providers for their families who are pursuing additional skills, training or education.

The group is offering a scholarship to one woman, their Live Your Dream Award, a $1,000 cash prize to help offset costs.

There is no age limit. The award money may be put toward tuition, books, supplies, child care or transportation costs.

The local winner will be eligible to compete for regional awards of $5,000 and international awards of $10,000.

To apply, submit an application and two completed reference forms, found at soroptimistofogden.org.

Application deadline is Nov. 15.

The application and reference forms may be sent to D. Lindstrom, 3023 W. 2600 S., West Haven, UT 84401 or emailed to lindstrj@hotmail.com.

Soroptimist International of Ogden has provided nearly $12,800 in awards to women working to improve their quality of life in the last eight years.
