Oconto Falls Municipal Utilities feels that it is our responsibility to give something back to the community and contribute to educational efforts. Because of this, each year we sponsor two $1,000 scholarships to local high school students.
One of the scholarships offered is the Lineworker Training Scholarship, available to any graduate who plans to attend an Electrical Power Distribution program at one of four Wisconsin Technical Colleges.
The second scholarship is available to any child of an Oconto Falls Municipal Utilities customer who plans to pursue an education in the trades.
