Community theatre offers scholarships
The Jamestown Community Theatre will present two $1,000 awards to graduating seniors for achievement in theater and performing arts.
The awards will be made on the basis of an essay not to exceed 500 words that describes the student's involvement in theatre and/or performing arts. Two references or letters of recommendation from teachers, coaches and directors will also be considered. It is not a requirement that the student's experience be with the Jamestown Community Theatre. Applicants must be Jamestown residents, but may be graduating from any high school.
The student may use the award in any way he or she decides.
Students wishing to apply for a JCT Theatre and Performing Arts Award should submit the essay and references by May 1, 2008 to: Jamestown Community Theatre, P.O. Box 14, Jamestown, RI 02835.
The awards will be presented at the student's high school awards ceremony.
