Announcing the winner of the Magi-Fest Youth Scholarship 2013!

4 Jan

MagiFest

After long and arduous deliberations over the holidays, our blind panel has decided on a winner! Find out who won!

The Scholarship

In 2012, Magicana’s Tony Eng Youth Fund and Magi-Fest  partnered together to create the 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.

Magicana received several entries from across Canada applying for the bursary and we are now delighted to announce the winner. Visit the Tony Eng Youth Fund site to find out which young Canadian won.
