New Scholarship Invites Creativity

Posted by Denyse Shannon on

Students from all over the state of Michigan are invited to participate in a new scholarship program launched this summer. The deadline for entry into the future mobility creativity contest is October 2nd, but is open to any student in 1st through 12th grades. Jue Wang is one of the scholarship co-founders and says the contest focuses on creativity and engagement with technology trends…

“Contestants are invited to conduct some research, and tap into their own imagination to describe what will mobility look like 10 to 20 years from now and what will be the new approach to transport people from place to place,” Wang says.

Wang, who is president of the Page Foundation, says presentations can include anything from concept drawings, paintings, PowerPoint presentations or videos. The idea is to encourage future leadership and innovation around transportation. She and Michigan Youth Empowerment Foundation Founder Grace Cai looked for ways to steer young people toward solutions to future challenges. She says the contest includes three age groups, elementary, middle and high school with scholarship prizes up to $500.
