Welcome to the Northwest Florida Mensa Local Group. This local group includes all of the ten counties in Northwest Florida west of the Apalachicola River (all of Florida in the Central Time Zone). We have about 180 members, monthly events, and a monthly newsletter.
We are a social organization, with a primary focus on social events. There are over ten events each month from Panama City to Pensacola. The annual Oktoberfest in Bluewater Bay in Niceville at the Winn Dixie shopping center, hosted by the Rotary, is one place we'll be on the 23rd of September. Join us if you can.
We also participate in the Mensa Education and Research Foundation's (MERF's) annual scholarship essay contest, and have been successful in having our applicants win national, regional and local scholarship awards for over twelve years. Nationally, MERF awarded over $91,000 in scholarships for the 2016 school year, and has exceeded $1,000,000 nationally since the program began.
In fact, the 2017 MERF scholarship program starts on September 15, 2016, and all essays must be submitted no later than midnight on January 15, 2017. The application is on line, and the essays are submitted on line, making the process very easy. Follow the link in the left column to the Mensa Education and Research Foundation for more.
