Contest announced for children expats
To those expats with children aged 12-18 who have resided in a foreign country for at least 2 consecutive years, listen up:
Washington, D.C. (PRWEB) January 28, 2010 — Clements International, the leading provider of insurance solutions for expatriates and international organizations, is announcing its 2nd annual scholarship program for expatriate students.
Clements International’s “Life in a Flying House” 2010 Expat Youth Scholarship will award $10,000 to students ages 12-18 of any nationality who have resided in a foreign country for at least two consecutive years. This year’s theme asks, “Where would you go in your flying house?” The “flying house” is inspired by the idea that students who spend their childhoods moving between different countries and cultures acquire unique life experiences.
“We were overwhelmed by the success of our first scholarship contest last year and the positive response we received from the expat community,” said President Chris Beck. “We’re excited to do it again and look forward to hearing from expat students and their families living all over the world.”
The scholarship contest offers expat students a chance to use their experiences living in a foreign country to imagine where their journey might take them next. Entries consist of an essay (500 – 750 words) and creative image or photograph that incorporates their own personalized flying house. A total of six winners will be selected from two age categories (12-15 and 16-18) based on the quality of the essay, how well their image creatively illustrates their answer to the essay question, and overall creativity. The scholarship entry deadline is Thursday, May 13, 2010.
