Bridgeport Days Festival Scholarship

The Bridgeport Days Festival Committee was established in 2006 for the purpose of hosting an annual community festival. The all-volunteer group made a significant personal time commitment to ensure a successful event. All committee members had a long history of community involvement.

Proceeds from the annual festival were given back to Bridgeport non-profit organizations and the Bridgeport-Spaulding school system. In 2017, the committee disbanded. To continue the committee’s legacy of giving back, an endowed scholarship fund was established to provide an annual $500 scholarship to a Bridgeport High School graduating senior.
