California Legislators Announce Essay and Visual Arts Scholarships to Raise Awareness of the Armenian Genocide
The California Armenian Legislative Caucus is holding two scholarship contests for the 2019 commemoration of the Armenian Genocide. California high school students in 9th through 12th grade are invited to participate in an essay contest and/or a visual arts contest to increase greater awareness of the Armenian Genocide.
All winners will be contacted directly and announced to mainstream and Armenian media by the California Armenian Legislative Caucus on Friday April 12, 2019. All winners will be awarded scholarships and a trip to Sacramento to be acknowledged at the California Armenian Legislative Caucus’ annual Armenian Advocacy Day during a press conference on April 22, 2019. Original artwork will be requested from visual arts applicants if they are selected as a finalist, for possible display in the California State Capitol.
Criteria for each contest are detailed below. Students may enter both contests, but submissions must be entered separately.
Submission Deadline for both contests is Monday, April 8, 2019.
