The Create-A-Greeting-Card Scholarship Contest is currently being offered by The Gallery Collection. If you are someone who is creative and/or loves a good greeting card, then this scholarship is for you! As with other artistic scholarships, this opportunity is based on creativity!
Who is eligible to apply for the scholarship contest?
This scholarship is open to all high school, college, and university students. The only eligibility criteria is that students must be at least 14 years or older at the time of entry (so some middle school students may even be able to apply). Home-schooled students are also welcome apply.
This scholarship opportunity is perfect for creative students. There is no required “theme,” but check out the Gallery website so that your card creation falls under one of the card lines featured. The Gallery website states that while Christmas cards are their biggest sellers, birthday and anniversary cards are also popular. Have a penchant for sympathy or “get well” messages? Those themes are also welcome. Be sure to browse the Gallery website for ideas, but also remember that their cards are targeted to a corporate clientele.
The winner will be chosen by a panel of objective employees who serve as judges. The main criteria looked at is as follows:
- Overall aesthetic appeal
- Quality of execution
- Creativity and Originality
- Successful incorporation of design elements
- Appropriateness for use as a greeting card
How much is the Create-A-Greeting-Card Scholarship Contest worth?
The applicant with the winning entry will receive a cash scholarship of $10,000 plus a $1,000 prize for their school!
The winner’s award is paid directly to the school they will/are attending.
