How to Apply:
What is an experience that you as an expat can appreciate that a tourist couldn’t?
Expats can fully immerse themselves in their local communities and cultures in ways that short-term tourists are not be able to. “Ike”—the Clements mascot—is a tourist visiting you. Show him something you get to do that a visitor probably wouldn’t. Include him in a photo, drawing, painting, or some other visual media. You can take a photo with him, include him in a scene, photograph him at a location, or paint him. These are just a few examples—be creative!
Entries can be submitted at expatyouthscholarship.com. Eligible contestants should complete the submission form, and wait for your entry to be reviewed. Once it is approved, it will be displayed in the contest gallery. Having trouble? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
