Congratulations to the recipients of Austin SCBWI’s first RA Scholarship.
The scholarship was started this year by Regional Advisor Samantha M Clark to lift up a voice that shows great promise in children’s books.
We were thrilled to see the response to our scholarship, and the decision was very difficult. So difficult, in fact, that we have a tie for the winner and decided to extend the scholarship to include an honor recipient!
After considering many different factors, the winners are Ehigbor Shultz and Korrine Salas Young, and the honor recipient is Wendra Lynne.
The winners each receive a full scholarship to our 2019 Austin SCBWI Writers & Illustrators Working Conference, two free webinars put on by Austin SCBWI in 2019, and the chance to ask any kidlit-related question they’d like to RA Samantha M Clark throughout the rest of 2019.
The honor recipient receives two free webinars put on by Austin SCBWI in 2019.
All are also invited to be our guest at Austin SCBWI’s Volunteer/Faculty Party the night before our conference.
Congratulations to Ehigbor, Korrine and Wendra!
