Donate to our local news fund, help a nonprofit

We’re on a mission in 2022 to work on a year-long series about housing in Racine County and we need your help to fund it. For every $250 in donations that we receive, we’ll give a nonprofit one free month in advertising.

The Racine Area Retired Educators Association (RAREA) has announced the availability of six scholarships offered to Racine Unified School District seniors and UW-Parkside teacher education students (IPED Program) who will pursue teaching as their career goal. Three $1,500 RAREA scholarships and one $2,000 Anna & Walter Stenavich Memorial Scholarship will be awarded to deserving high school students. Two scholarships are earmarked for UW- Parkside students: The Martenas Family Scholarship for $5,000 and one RAREA $3,000 scholarship.

Applications are available online through the high schools’ websites and the UW-Parkside IPED website. Applications from UW-Parkside students are due on or before March 14 and sent to the address listed below:
