Youth Scholarship Program

This is a new option we are making available this year. In the interest of involving more young writers in the industry of our craft, we are inviting local businesses to scholarship a college or high school student to attend.

For $500, you send one student to the conference for all three days. You get mentioned in the program, on our blog, in our social media, and verbally at a conference meal. You also get your logo and name on the back of a t-shirt the student wears each day.

And you get to contribute to the education of an up-and-coming writer. Who knows? He or she might mention you in a Pulitzer acceptance speech some day.
