LoLaw Enforcement Scholarship Programs Open


--RELEASE--

Morrison County Sheriff Shawn Larsen announced today the commencement of the Law Enforcement Scholarship Program for 2021. Sheriff Larsen proudly announced that the MSA Board of Directors has established a scholarship fund for the awarding of up to 15- $2,000 scholarships for this year.  These scholarships are due to the coordinated efforts of the 87 Sheriffs of the State of Minnesota.

The Members of MSA gives special recognition to the financial needs of students attending the peace officer skills course, or one of the two, or four-year law enforcement degree colleges. “The Board of Directors feel peace officers in our democratic society have complex duties to perform” said Sheriff Larsen. MSA recognizes the importance of pre-entry training for people considering law enforcement as their career choice. MSA recognizes some students need outside help in meeting the costs of such training, even though they excel academically.

The Scholarship Committee, in making its selection of awards, intends on achieving representation from all geographical areas of the state. Scholarship awards will be announced by December 28th of the same year. Application forms and a statement of procedures are available at the Morrison County Sheriff’s Office. Scholarships are only available to students currently enrolled in one of the following three categories:

  1. Mandated POST Skills Program
  2. In their second year of a two-year law enforcement program.
  3. In their third or fourth year of a four-year college criminal justice program.

In order to qualify, students must have completed at least one year of the two-year program or two years of a four-year program.  Students meeting these criteria are invited to obtain a scholarship application form from their local sheriff’s office or online at www.mnsheriffs.org .

The Great Pumpkin Medallion Hunt: Week #1, Clue #5 for Friday, 9/24/21

You still haven't found it? Check out the southeast side where the beer garden is set up at Smokey Bear Park. It's under something.....check around the fence line. Bring it to us when you find it!!

The Great Pumpkin Medallion Hunt: Week #1, Clue #4 for Thursday, 9/23/21

You must be close now. I'm guessing looking at Smokey Bear's backside is not a good sight from where the medallion is. Maybe a beer from the beer gardens might help? Find that orange medallion.

The Great Pumpkin Medallion for Week #1 has been found!

Congrats to Owen Wherley who found the Great Pumpkin Medallion under the fence by the beer garden in Smokey Bear Park. Owen won a $50 gift certificate to Ronning's, a solar powered radio from Northland Sales and Service, and a combo value meal from McDonald's.

Week 2 clues for the Great Pumpkin Medallion Hunt will begin on Monday!

The Great Pumpkin Medallion Hunt: Week #1, Clue #3 for Wednesday, 9/22/21

Think about all the activities that this location has all summer long. Once, a long time ago, it even had an ice rink that Tim Sheehy skated on.

The Great Pumpkin Medallion Hunt: Week #1, Clue #2 for Tuesday, 9/21/21

Well, it's obvious that the first clue wasn't enough. Let's think about how independent you will be, walking up onto the stage and collecting this week's prize of a $50 Ronning's Gift Card and the solar powered radio from Northland Sales.

The Great Pumpkin Medallion Hunt: Week #1, Clue #1 for Monday, 9/20/21

You need to look deep to find the Pumpkin Medallion this week. A good start will be on Main Street.

Clue #1: aired 02.22.21, posted online 02.23.21

It’s here! Our very first scavenger hunt and our very first clue!

Home Grown Local Radio has hidden something for you!

To find the prize, you’ll have to look all around,

To the North, East, and the south, or even westbound.

To Speed things up, but without giving it away…

If you break it, don’t buy it – repair it instead, okay?


Clue #2: aired 02.25.21, posted online 02.26.21

Clue number two – you know what to do!

Get in your car, whether it’s old or new.

Drive around town until you find the spot,

There won’t be an ‘X’ to let you know if you’re cold or hot…

But you’ll know you’re getting closer

If you find yourself near your local grocer


Clue #3: aired 03.01.21, posted online 03.02.21

Third clue’s a charm, at least that’s what we hope for

If you don’t know where to look you may need to open up a door

So dust off your Brain, and find your inner Nerd,

You may be looking for a couple letters before another word

Don’t stop to get a sandwich, no matter how fast,

You’re close, but if you Speed away you’ll definitely go past.


Clue #4: aired 03.04.21

For clue number four, we’ll try to be a bit more clear

First, if you’re not in NE Brainerd, you’re nowhere near

So get some HD glasses to enhance your sight,

Look for two garages and head to the right.

Open the door and take a step inside

Look to the left and you may see something we tried to hide
