StriveTogether, a national network bringing communities together around data to make decisions and improve results for kids, is offering a scholarship opportunity for current high school seniors and students enrolled in a post secondary institution in communities served by a partnership in its Cradle to Career Network. Because of the work of Building Our Future, students in Kenosha County are eligible for the Art Inspires scholarship.
Students are challenged to create art that responds to their choice of two poems by spoken word poet Christian Paige, “Trees” or “The Eyes of your Enemy.” StriveTogether will select up to 10 works of art to be featured in one of its offices in Cincinnati, Ohio, or Chicago, Ill. Selected student artists each will receive a $1,000 scholarship to support coursework at a post secondary institution in the 2019-2020 academic year. The artwork created through this opportunity will inspire StriveTogether staff and partners daily as they work to achieve the organization’s vision: the success of every child cradle to career.
Applications must be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org by May 10, 2019. Each submission must include a video by the artist explaining the piece’s inspiration and meaning as well as a completed scholarship application and proof of enrollment or intent to enroll in a post secondary institution. Scholarship winners will be notified by May 29, 2019.
