Do you need $5000 for college? Are you a college student doing cartooning? Then you could apply for the Jay Kennedy Scholarship. But hurry, the deadline is December 15, 2015. For more information, please go to http://cartoonistfoundation.reuben.org/jay-kennedy/
Jay Kennedy was my first editor King Features and actually hired me to be the cartoonist on the Barney Google and Snuffy Smith comic strip. He was truly a wonderful man and who loved the art of cartooning. The annual Jay Kennedy Scholarship, in memory of the late King Features editor, was funded by an initial $100,000 grant from the Hearst Foundation/King Features Syndicate and additional generous donations from Jerry Scott, Jim Borgman, Patrick McDonnell and many other prominent cartoonists. A panel of top cartoonists adjudicates submissions and an award is given to the best college cartoonist. The recipient is feted at the annual NCS Reuben Awards Convention attended by many of the world’s leading cartoonists.
If you’re a college cartoonist, be sure to enter! You’ve got nothing to lose and $5000 to win!
