Seniors Itzel Rodriguez of West Grand High School and Madison Muir of Middle Park High School are vying for the Teen of the Year scholarship after being named Teenager of the Month in October.

Mary Broyles, Head of Scholarships at Idaho Springs Elks Lodge, explained that Rodriguez and Moyer were nominated by school advisors as one of six students from each school to receive scholarship funds.

Rodriguez is a member of the Future Business Leaders of America Club, captain of the West Grand Dance Team and cheerleading and a member of the student council.



Muir is the basketball team captain, student council president, and 4-H club captain, as well as a college football player and member of the Student Voice Initiative.

The Elks National Foundation offers an annual scholarship, which Grand County seniors are eligible for, that provides up to $50,000 for four years of college.



Rodriguez and Moyer are two of 24 students eligible for the 2022 scholarship. Six students are nominated by school staff from Middle Park High School, West Grand High School, Clear Creek High School, and Idaho Springs High School.

Each school can nominate one student per month from October to March. Recipients will be announced in April 2022.
