New Golf Media scholarship announced by the Arizona Golf Foundation

The Arizona Golf Foundation announced the availability of a scholarship for high school students who reside in our state. Winners of the “Grow the Game of Golf Media” scholarship will be determined by a writing contest directed at students pursuing a media career, with a focus on the golf industry. 

“The future of golf truly depends on engaging young people at an early age,” commented Ed Gowan, Executive Director of the Arizona Golf Association. “It is our hope that the winners of the AGF scholarship will become active participants in the game, using their media skills across the wide breadth of the golf realm, to promote new and fresh ideas that will help grow the sport.” 

Entry into the Grow the Game of Golf Media Scholarship is open to all Arizona high school seniors statewide, including those attending public, private and/or parochial schools. Home-schooled 12th grade equivalent high school students are also welcome to submit. Each participate must write an essay (minimum 1,000/maximum 2,000 words) entitled, “How to Grow the Game of Golf.” Essays will be judged on content and creativity by Masters’ candidates of the English Department at ASU. Entries must be submitted by 5pm Arizona time on October 10, 2011. 

The winning essay will be awarded $2,500. Second place winner will receive a scholarship in the amount of $1,500. Winners of the Grow the Game of Golf Media Scholarship will be notified by November 1, 2011. Presentation of the scholarship awards will take place at the Arizona Golf Foundation Hall of Fame awards dinner on November 21, at Gainey Ranch Golf Club in Scottsdale, Arizona.
