This is the Foundation’s ninth year of providing scholarships to talented high school and college students.

Once again, the Foundation received hundreds of applications from across the country. Along with their portfolio of work, recipients were chosen based on several criteria, including financial need, an essay, letters of reference and their school transcript.

The Foundation’s guest judges this year were Steve Bodinet, formerly of KTVK, Channel 3, Phoenix and Elise Wilson, of Aspen PRO Media, Arizona.

High School:
Five high school students each received a Nikon D3400 camera with lenses, carrying case and memory card.
College:
Five college students each received a $2,500 scholarship, payable to their school. (Because of the many talented entries received, the Foundation decided to award an additional $1,500 Honorable Mention Award for still photography.)
