Glendale officials last week announced the city’s Commission on the Status of Women is seeking local students to apply for their annual $1,000 scholarship, called the 2010 Gem of Glendale Award.

Here’s more from the city press release:

 The Gem of Glendale Award is a scholarship that will be awarded to one outstanding student (male or female) who is engaged in community service that reflects the core values and mission of the Commission on the Status of Women. The community service should include work involving women and/or girls in areas such as: homelessness, health, leadership, and financial literacy.
