The Family Travel Forum and the Society of American Travel Writers invite applications to a scholarship program that's designed to encourage teens to share their travel experiences in words and images.
The tenth annual Teen Travel Writing Scholarship is available to junior- and high-school students between the ages of 13 and 18. To be considered, applicants must submit a travel blog of no more than six hundred words. All entries must also contain at least one photo, digital artwork, or video.
The first-place winner will receive a $1,000 cash award, with cash prizes of $500 and $250 going to the second- and third-place authors. The work of twenty honorable mention nominees will be recognized with travel gifts. In addition, all of the top blog posts will be posted on the Family Travel Forum website.
Entriess will be accepted between May 15 and July 14, 2017.
See the Family Travel Forum website for complete program guidelines, examples of previous winning entries, and application instructions.
