“You Can Create Tomorrow” in the 10th annual Art Institutes and Americans for the Arts Poster Design Competition
Deadline is January 31 for high school seniors and high school graduates to create a poster for a chance to earn tuition scholarships
High school seniors and high school graduates are putting their talents and creativity to the test in The Art Institutes and Americans for the Arts Poster Design Competition. Entries into this year’s Competition will be accepted through January 31, 2013. High school seniors could earn up to a full tuition scholarship and a high school graduate could earn a $10,000 scholarship to study at one of the more than 50 Art Institutes schools.
This year’s Competition challenges high school seniors and high school graduates from the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico to design a poster that best expresses the Competition’s theme “You Can Create Tomorrow.” Contestants will compete in two different categories: (i) high school senior or (ii) high school graduate/adult.
“Each year we are impressed by the kind of talent these students exhibit,” said John Mazzoni, President of The Art Institutes. “We are honored to sponsor this scholarship Competition and assist these students on their journey to create a better tomorrow.”
“Art is such a vital part of our everyday lives,” said Robert L. Lynch, president and CEO of Americans for the Arts. “We support this Competition because we want to ensure that the next generation of artists has a solid foundation to hone their skills and thrive in these exciting fields.”
High school seniors could earn up to $3,000 and high school graduates could earn $1,000 in tuition scholarships in local Competitions at participating Art Institutes schools. Winners of the local Competition in both the high school senior and high school graduate categories move on to the national Competition. In the national Competition, high school seniors could earn up to a full-tuition scholarship and a high school graduate could earn a $10,000 scholarship to attend an Art Institutes school.
