Prospective graphic designers who wish to further their education may be able to showcase their work and earn money for college through a recently opened contest from the Art Institute.

The nationwide education system has partnered with nonprofit organization Americans for the Arts to offer scholarships through its annual Poster Design Contest.

High school seniors who plan to pursue a degree in graphic design are invited to enter the contest in order to compete for full-tuition scholarships at several of the school''s branches.

Applicants will be challenged to create a design that fits the theme, Life is better with art in it.

Each participating school will select two winners to receive a full-tuition scholarship to study graphic design. One first-place winner from each branch will receive a $3,000 award, and second-place awardees will receive $2,000 each.

The regional winners will be invited to submit their entries to the national contest, where they may receive more financial assistance.

Robert L. Lynch, president and CEO of American for the Arts, said "it is wonderful to see these talented students taking the next step to pursue a career they love in the arts and being rewarded for it."
