Shutta’s Scholarship Solution to the Winter Doldrums is Here Again!
If you are interested in attending the 2018 SCBWI Winter Conference in New York City, but feel you can’t afford it—think again. Shutta’s scholarship will send someone off to the wintery wilds of New York from February 2-4, 2018. And to top it off, SCBWI-MI will pay the awardee’s airfare! You can’t beat that!
Shutta will pay the full early-bird registration fee for a Michigan SCBWI member to attend. The qualifying rules are listed on the application form which is posted on the Michigan SCBWI website and at Shutta’s site. Applications must be submitted by midnight on October 20th. Due to changes in the format, attendance will be limited and recipients will need to act fast if chosen. So make your decision now! The winner will be drawn at random and notified soon after registration begins.
SCBWI-MI will reimburse the scholarship winner for the cost of airfare. (There will be a cap on the maximum coverage of the airfare.)
The conference is Feb. 2-4, 2018. Early bird registration starts in October. See the national SCBWI site at: http://www.scbwi.org for conference details. You never know what magical thing might happen to you there!

Past winners (since 2011) have included: Amy Nielander, Kelly Barson, Vicky Lorencen, Elizabeth McBride, Taraneh Matloob, Lindsey McDivitt, and Andrea Donahoe.
