2. Resume (include extra-curricular activities, leadership positions and awards)
3. Now for the fun part…
a. First, imagine an event that you would like to have or attend. Next, imagine that you were responsible for creating it but it had to be unique. What would you do? Identify the event, the purpose, the audience, the theme and the unique creative idea you have for the event.

You are welcome to submit supporting materials (Word or PDF format; video links) with your plan (i.e., creative work, videos, ads, etc.). Please be sure to follow instructions on the website. Include the first initial of your first name and your last name in the file names of all submitted materials.

The scholarship will be awarded to a recent high school graduate entering Stephens College in Fall 2013.
