Essay and Visual Arts Scholarships to Raise Awareness of the Armenian Genocide
Essay and Visual Arts Scholarships to Raise Awareness of
the Armenian Genocide
The California Armenian Legislative Caucus Foundation is holding two scholarship
contests for the 2023 commemoration of the Armenian Genocide. California high school
students in ninth through twelfth grades are invited to participate in an essay contest
and/or a visual arts contest to increase awareness of the Armenian Genocide. The
submission deadline for both contests is Friday, March 31, 2023.
All winners will be awarded scholarships and acknowledged at the Foundation’s Annual
Armenian Advocacy Day. Winners will also receive special recognition from the
Foundation’s members. Original artwork may be requested from visual arts finalists for
display in the California State Capitol. Scholarship awards are $1,000 for first place,
$750 for second place, and $500 for third place in each contest.
Instructions and criteria for the contests are available on the Asbarez Newspaper web
