The six Judges who select the winners are not members or employees of Local 565 and are from various walks of life. The Judges are given all completed applications. They assign point totals for each scoring category. The score sheets are then sent to the Local’s Office Manager who compiles the totals. The top scorers are awarded the available scholarships. The full time Officers of the Local do not see the applications or results until the winners are announced.
