2015 ACIS Student Scholarship Contest

January 9, 2015 Cara Marzilli 1 Comment

Travel changes lives. It’s not only our slogan, but a theme we believe in whole-heartedly. We want you to be able to experience the world, but know that purchasing a ticket to travel is not the same as purchasing a new pair of shoes – but, believe me, you get so much more out of travel than a pair of shoes! So show us your skills in this year’s contest, and you could win a scholarship prize toward your ACIS tour.

collect experiences not things

The theme of the 2015 scholarship is Colors of Travel. Tell us about the colors in your world. Do these colors remind you of a specific event, place or person? Are they in your own backyard or from a past family vacation? If you’ve recently returned from your trip, what colors stood out to you the most? Did they make you feel a certain way? Use this opportunity to tell us or show us what it means to live in a colorful (or un-colorful) world.

Entries for the artwork, photography and writing categories are judged on creativity and inventiveness in expressing an idea related to this theme.
