[Harp-L] SPAH Youth Scholarships - apply by June 1
Mon May 2 13:16:45 EDT 2016
Deadline to apply for a 2016 SPAH Youth Scholarship has been extended to June 1.
We already have some strong applications from previous award recipients but we’d like see some new faces, and we know they’re out there!
Do you know an outstanding young (21 or under) harmonica player who would benefit from attending a SPAH convention? If so, encourage them to apply!
Every year, SPAH awards up to five youth scholarships that provide registration and accommodation at the annual SPAH convention.
Each scholarship recipient gets to attend all seminars and performances, visit with vendors and sponsors, learn from seeing, hearing, and interacting with all the varied and wonderful players and unique harmonica personalities that attend a SPAH convention, and participate in jams. Each scholarship recipient will also perform onstage during the Friday Night concert. In addition they’ll be required to help out for a brief period, doing things like selling raffle tickets.
We’re encouraging young harmonica players to apply. For more information, check out the scholarship page at http://spah.org/content.asp?pl=94&sl=100&contentid=100 Winslow Yerxa
