The Payson Elks Lodge has started a new monthly scholarship program for students. The Elks Lodge Student of the Month program is an effort to bring recognition to outstanding youth in the area.
A school panel selects students for the award.
Students are nominated monthly by classmates and teachers in their schools. Each school may select a boy and a girl for the award.
