Maryland Retailers Association Announce Winners of Tax-Free Week Scholarship Contest

Comptroller Peter Franchot joined Maryland Retailers Association President Cailey Locklair to announce the winners of this year’s Shop Maryland Tax-Free Week scholarship contest, which this year asked Maryland students to explain how they helped a business during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Members with the Maryland Retailers Association say, Mirian Fuentes Romero, a junior at Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore, received the $1,000 top prize for supporting two family businesses and her church using her graphic design skills and hands-on contributions.

Kyle Fritschi, a junior at the University of Maryland, College Park, was selected for the $500 runner-up scholarship award for his continued dedication as an employee at Brooke Grove Retirement Village in Sandy Spring. A childhood cancer survivor who is immunocompromised, Fritschi took on extra shifts when there was an outbreak of COVID-19 among residents and staff.
