Last call for the Magi-Fest Youth Scholarship 2013!

5 Dec

You only have a few weeks left!

Submit your essays now for a chance to win a bursary to attend the Magi-Fest 2013 convention at the Crowne Plaza, Dublin, Ohio from January 24 to 26, 2013. Deadline for submission is on December 10, 2012, 11:59 PM, EST. 

Magicana’s Tony Eng Youth Fund and Magi-Fest are partnering up to deliver Magi-Fest Youth Scholarship 2013.

The Columbus Magi-Fest is one of the oldest and most significant magic gatherings in the world. It is an 83-year old tradition that has fostered and helped develop the careers of young magicians. The festival includes youth-only events in which international headline performers work directly with young magicians on their acts. Additionally, lectures, shows and workshops are held where attendees can learn about the experiences and knowledge of  professional magicians.

To apply:

We invite passionate young magicians to submit a short essay (500 words or less) on why they would like to attend and what they hope to gain from attending this event. In addition to the essay, you will also need the following to qualify:

  • to be a Canadian aged 12 to 17 years old;
  • to have parent/guardian consent; and
  • to be in possession of valid passport(s) –  a must have for both travellers upon application.

All qualifying submissions will be reviewed by a blind panel of judges (judges will not know names nor ages) and a winner will be selected. Winners will be notified by phone and email.

Do it now!

If you meet the above requirements, then send us an email (info@magicana.com) including your name, age, city of residence, telephone number and a short essay on why you’d like to attend and what you hope to gain from going to the 2013 MagiFest. To be a qualifying submission, we must be able to contact your parent or guardian so be sure to include their telephone number!
