I received a package from The Scholastic Art and Writing Awards on Thursday. Inside, it said that one of my pieces, Almost a Woman, is on its way to New York to be displayed at Carnegie Hall!
Almost A Woman, 3"x 5"
Along with that, I recieved a National Silver Key for,
-Hannah Plummer print
Hannah Plummer II, 3" x 5"
Self-portrait, (about) 27" x 32"
After all this excitement, I called up SAIC to see if I could receive any additional scholarship money for my National wins.
None. Zero. Zip. Nada. Go home kid.
I am tried of being optimistic and getting my hopes up. In reality, I knew my family could not afford to send me there, but I kept telling myself that the school would help me out. The merit Scholarship is good, but I will be about $36,000 in debt before i turn 21. And that's just from my first year.
