It doesn’t matter what month you joined because our dues are only $10.00 per person and we do not pro-rate them. There are two ways to pay your dues as a result of Covid 19. Please use Method 1 or Method 2.

Method 1- Use our website to renew, emeraldisleparrotheads.com. Go to: Click here to Join or Renew picture (or click this link!) and follow the directions. You do not fill out a form to renew.

2020 PHiP Scholarship Winners Announced

Hello Parrot Heads:

It is the extreme honor of the 2020 PHiP Board of Directors to announce the winners of the 2020 scholarships. We would like to thank our judges for their hard work and efforts in reading each and every application. The applicants had to answer three questions as well as submit a blind essay (Tell us about your leadership skills in your school or community.  Tell us how you plan to continue to apply your leadership skills at the school you are planning to attend).  We received many applications and these fine judges had some very tough decisions to make.

Full congratulations go out to all our applicants and the board wishes each and every one of you good luck with your continued education. It was a very close decision and each of the winners should be very proud of what they do.

The winners of the 2020 scholarships are:

Heather Erlemann, from Cary North Carolina (Parrot Heads Of North Carolina) is the winner of the first place award of $5000.

Laney Phillips from Orr’s Island Maine (PHC Of Maine) is the winner of the second place award of $3000.

Lauren DeFrance from Richmod, Texas (Galveston Bay Parrot Head Club) is the winner of the third place award of $2000.

Again, congratulations to the three winners and thank you to all that applied as well as our judges who took many hours out of their days to help in making this very tough decision.
