    Plato’s Closet Scholarship – Deadline:  April 1, 2019
    At Plato’s Closet Columbia, we live and breathe the ideals of “reduce, reuse, and recycle” every day.  We sell high quality, gently used clothing and accessories. We keep cash locally. Long story short, we’re passionate about community involvement and sustaining the green economy.  That’s where you come in…..Tell us how you’ve made a difference-at home, at school, or in the community. Did you start a project? Are you part of a team? Maybe you made a difference individually.  Send a one page summary (because you’ve got better things to do than write some lengthy essay about the thing you’ve already done!) Bonus points if you tell us how you’ve helped to “reduce, reuse, or recycle” ;)
    Winner will be selected April 15, 2019
