The Family Travel Forum and the Society of American Travel Writers are inviting applications for a scholarship program designed to encourage teens to share their travel experiences in words and images.
The tenth annual Teen Travel Writing Scholarship is available to 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 grant, while the second- and third-place winners will receive cash prizes of $500 and $250, respectively. The work of twenty honorable mention nominees will be rewarded with travel gifts. In addition, all the top blogs will be posted on the Family Travel Forum website.
Applications will be accepted between May 1 and July 9, 2018.
See the Family Travel Forum website for complete program guidelines, examples of the entries of previous scholarship winners, and application instructions.
