 Center for Cartoon Studies Scholarship for a teen age 16 or older!

For the seventh year in a row, the Center for Cartoon Studies in White River Junction has donated a full scholarship to the Department of Libraries so a Vermont teen can attend their one week workshop, “Create Comics,” this summer. This full scholarship, worth $900, includes the workshop, supplies, morning/afternoon snacks, full lunch and evening student activities. Lodging is not included, but there is a very inexpensive hostel option at the nearby Hotel Coolidge. Any Vermont student age 16 or older (must be 16 years old by June 1, 2015) is eligible. The workshop will take place in White River Junction, VT July 20-24, 2015. Students interested in the scholarship should apply through their local school or public library.

 

The only entry requirements are: (1) that the student is a Vermonter and at least 16 years old, and (2) the applicant has the ability to attend the entire workshop in July.  ***Please make sure the student is able to attend.  No shows might put the future of this program in jeopardy.***

 

The contest will be conducted through the library (school or public) and librarians will be responsible for sending in the entry forms to the Department of Libraries by May 4, 2015. VTLIB will hold a drawing and will let the winning student’s librarian know the results by May 15.
