Sen. Scott Wilk, R-Santa Clarita, has announced two scholarship contests sponsored by the California Armenian Legislative Caucus for the 2022 remembrance of the Armenian genocide. California high school students in grades 9 through 12 are invited to participate in an essay and/or a visual arts contest to increase awareness of the Armenian genocide, which is commemorated on April 24.
“This is a wonderful opportunity for interested students to display their artistic talent, whether it is expressing those words on paper or storytelling through visual arts about one of the worst atrocities against the Armenian people,” said Wilk. “I hope students will seize this chance to participate in one or both scholarship contests and learn more about the Armenian genocide.”
The deadline for the essay and visual arts submissions is April 8, and the California Armenian Legislative Caucus notifies winners prior to April 15. Winners will receive scholarships and acknowledgment on Armenian Advocacy Day hosted by the California Armenian Legislative Caucus. In addition, the original artwork of winners may be on display in the California State Capitol.
