THE CYSTIC FIBROSIS AWARENESS SCHOLARSHIP
Founded in 1969, Naag Tag has provided businesses and institutions with the fundamentals in employee and individual recognition. We offer engraving services specializing in name tags, name plates, desk wedges, office signs, ID badges, and a host of other items.
In addition to our many years of service to our customers, we also serve our community and friends as active participants in the efforts to support those with Cystic Fibrosis. Every year, Naag Tag sponsors a BBQ fundraiser to donate to and raise awareness for this disease. As an expansion of that, we are proud to offer the Cystic Fibrosis Awareness Scholarship.
The scholarship is designed to raise awareness for Cystic Fibrosis. Students are required to write an essay around a topic about the disease for the chance to receive the $1500 scholarship. The hope is that students will learn from the essay they write and become advocates for those with Cystic Fibrosis and their loved ones.
