The Bards Initiative offers a scholarship to an outgoing senior at Northport High School who shows promise in poetry.
It is offered in the name of Michael A. Santoli--a young poet we lost too soon at the age of 28.
The scholarship is normally funded by donations at live readings throughout the year.
This year, for obvious reasons, as with last year, this year we had no fundraising from live events.
But the scholarship is still being awarded, in fact we selected TWO winners this year which will be presented in a virtual ceremony.
Since we didn't get to fundraise with our live events, we can use any support for the fund you might offer.
To thank you for your support... Here are 4 eBooks you can download instantly by clicking the pictures!

Every dollar you donate above to the scholarship counts as 1 raffle ticket.
