AKRON, OHIO-The Akron Section of the Society of Plastics Engineers Inc. will auction off donated goods March 25 to raise money for its Education Foundation Scholarship Program. The section provides as much as $2,000 a year to students pursuing university degrees or training certificates in plastics-related careers.
To qualify, applicants either must be from the Akron area, or enrolled in a regional school or program. They also must meet a grade-point criterion and submit an essay.
For past auctions, bidders vied for bargains on resin, equipment, golf packages, seats for baseball games and rides on the Goodyear blimp. Last year's auction raised roughly $25,000.
