Jay Kennedy Scholarship deadline December 15
For those aspiring cartoonists in your life, please remind them the Jay Kennedy Scholarship entry is due December 15. Applicants must be Junior or Senior students during the 2013–2014 academic year at a 4-year college in the United States, Canada or Mexico. They do not have to be art majors to be eligible.
Head over to the National Cartoonists Society Foundation, fill out the form and send eight copies/samples of your best work.
The annual Jay Kennedy Scholarship, in memory of the late King Features editor, was funded by an initial $100,000 grant from the Hearst Foundation/King Features Syndicate and additional generous donations from Jerry Scott, Jim Borgman, Patrick McDonnell and many other prominent cartoonists. Submissions are adjudicated by a panel of top cartoonists and an award is given to the best college cartoonist. The recipient is feted at the annual NCS Reuben Awards Convention attended by many of the world’s leading cartoonists.
