The Christophers Poster Contest
September 2, 2008
Aspiring artists, break out your pens for this week's Scholarship of the Week, the Christophers' Poster Contest for High School Students. The art scholarship competition, which carries a grand prize of $1000, encourages high school students to create an original poster featuring the text "you can make a difference." Just by using your artistic talent in two-dimensional or computer-generated art to create a poster, you could be $1000 closer to funding your education, without having to worry about GPA, test score, or financial need requirements.
The Christophers is a non-profit organization founded in 1945 for the purpose of using media to encourage people to make positive changes in their community. 2008-2009 is the 19th year they've helped students pay for school through this poster competition.
Prize: 1st prize is $1000, 2nd prize is $500, 3rd prize is $250, and five honorable mentions receive $100 each.
Eligibility: High school students currently enrolled in grades 9-12.
Deadline: January 19, 2009.
Required Materials: One 15" by 20" poster and a completed application form, which is available on The Christophers' website. Posters must include the words "you can make a difference" and be the original work of one student.
Further details about the application process can be found by conducting a free college scholarship search on Scholarships.com. Once the search is completed, students eligible for this scholarship award will find it in their search results.
