Competition to award scholarships real-world experience to budding fashion experts

on Thursday,March 04,2010 22:03


Youngsters who wish to pursue careers in the fashion industry may want to consider entering scholarship competitions that can give them experience in the field, such as the Next Direct Children's Model Competition.

Wilhelmina Models and fashion brand Next Direct have partnered to host the event, which is open to children between the ages of four and seven years.

Qualified students can enter the contest by uploading a picture of themselves onto the competition's Facebook page. Visitors to the site will vote on the entries to determine the top 50 finalists, who will be flown to Universal Studios in Los Angeles for the final round of judging.

A selection committee will select one winner to receive a one-year modeling contract and a $100,000 scholarship, which they can use to enroll in a college degree program in fashion design after they have learned about the industry.

Eligible candidates and their families may enter the competition through March 15, and the judging event at Universal Studios will take place in late April.
