$2,000 scholarship contest

Entertainment, Theatre & Culture for Rancho Murieta is sponsoring its annual essay contest for graduating high school seniors who live in Rancho Murieta North or South. This year, 2017 applicants can select one question to address their essay from the three listed below:

  • How have the arts (dance, music, visual art, theater) influenced you to change your behavior and the way you see the world?
  • What do you consider to be an important influence on the arts (dance, music, visual art, theater) today?
  • Describe how the arts (dance, music, visual art, theater) has led you on the path to the possibility of new interests now open to you?

ETC will award the $2,000 scholarship directly to the college or trade school the contest winner will attend in the Fall of 2017 or Spring of 2018, and it will apply toward the winner’s tuition and fees.  The entry form with contest rules can be downloaded here or you can get a copy at the Rancho Murieta Association Building.

Essays must be 550 to 600 words in length.  Entries must be postmarked by May 30, 2017.  The contest winner will be announced at the July 22nd concert at Lake Clementia prior to the performance of BOSTYX featuring David Victor, formerly of Boston – a Boston Styx tribute band.
