I received this message from Rick Stromoski a couple days ago.
For your consideration....
It is about a month to the December 15 deadline for the Jay Kennedy
Memorial Scholarship and we'd like your help to get the word out. If
you have a website or blog, we would appreciate it if you'd put up
some infomation and art pertaining to the scholarship so that possible
applicants might see it. The info block and the link are below and the
art is attached. (It's a great piece done by John Martz.)
Thanks in advance,
President, National Cartoonists Society Foundation

Do you cartoon? You could win a $5,000 scholarship and a trip to Las
Vegas to meet the top names in cartooning. Don't delay - the deadline

Applicants must be students at a 4-year college in the United States,
Canada or Mexico who will be a Junior or Senior during the 2012-2013

The annual Jay Kennedy Memorial Scholarship, in memory of the late
King Features editor, was funded by an initial $100,000 grant from the
Hearst Foundation/King Features Syndicate and additional generous
donations from Jerry Scott, Jim Borgman, Patrick McDonnell and many
other prominent cartoonists. Submissions are adjudicated by a panel of
top cartoonists and an award is given to the best college cartoonist.
The recipient is feted at the annual NCS Reuben Awards Convention
attended by many of the world's leading cartoonists.
