2020 Scholarship Recipients

This is the Foundation’s 13th year of providing scholarships to talented high school, college and graduate students.

Once again, the Foundation received hundreds of applications from across the country. Along with their portfolio of work, recipients were chosen based on several criteria, including financial need, an essay, letters of reference and their school transcript.

The Foundation’s guest judges this year were, once again, Steve Bodinet, formerly of KTVK-KPHO, Channel 3, Phoenix and Elise Wilson, of Aspen PRO Media, Arizona.

High School:

Five high school students each received a Canon EOS Rebel T7 DSLR Camera with lenses, memory card and back pack.
