AI seeking high schoolers with a passion for fashion

Seniors can win a full-ride design scholarship to Art Institute



The Art Institute of Charleston recently announced the 2010 Passion for Fashion Competition, open to high school seniors across the country. Winners in two categories — fashion design, and fashion marketing & merchandising and retail management — will receive a full-tuition scholarship to study fashion at one of The Art Institute schools. Winners will also receive a trip to New York City to attend a Fashion Week show, attend a meet & greet at Seventeen Magazine’s offices, receive a $500 shopping spree, and more.

Students will be asked to create an original plan for their category.

To be eligible, students must be a senior in high school, set to graduate in 2010, complete an Entry & Release Form, have a minimum cumulative GPA of at least 2.0, and write a short essay describing their interest in fashion. Applicants to the fashion design category must submit a finished, originally designed evening wear garment and process book. Marketing applicants must create a product or plan.
Deadline is Nov. 20. A scholarship entry information session will be held on Oct. 24 at the Art Institute of Charleston at 10 a.m. For more information, call (843) 727-3500.
