Every year the Oakley Chamber offers a $500 scholarship to the winner of an essay contest. The contest is open to seniors at Freedom High School. Starting in 2013, the Chamber is using the contest to launch an “Oakleypedia,” an encyclopedia of important people and places in Oakley. All entries will be included in the Oakleypedia, but only the best will receive the prize money. Details will be available soon, along with information on contributing to the scholarship fund.
