The Etowah Water and Sewer Authority awarded scholarships to four Dawson County High School seniors during honor's night earlier this month.
Three students--Madison Sheriff, Meredith Malone and Addison Huthwaite--received $1,000 to further their education.
Sheriff plans to study sports management at the University of North Georgia.
Malone will also attend UNG in the fall to major in early childhood education and Huthwaite plans to attend the University of South Carolina to major in accounting.
Luke Ellis was awarded a $2,000 scholarship. Ellis plans to attend Georgia Tech where he will major in applied mathematics.
All scholarship applicants were required to write two essays, one about themselves and the other on a topic chosen by the authority.
This year's essay question was: How does the drinking water around the world differ from the drinking water in the United States and why do you think it is important?
