PGSF 2022 Poster Design Contest

Students

OPEN TO STUDENTS OF ALL GRADE LEVELS - SHOW YOUR DESIGN SKILLS!

Each year PGSF awards 200+ college-level scholarships ranging in value from $2,000 to $5,000 and we turn to our student community to help us promote these scholarship programs. We are asking students to design a poster promoting our scholarship programs. The winning posters will be displayed in schools across the United States in the upcoming school year. The winning entrants will receive a $500 check, an award certificate, and will be honored in a national news release, on the PGSF website, and on social media platforms.

We will need unique poster designs for each of the following scholarship programs:

  • Full-time Student Scholarship
  • Part-time Student Scholarship

Educators: Please encourage students in your school to enter the PGSF Poster Competition either as individuals or as part of a class assignment or project. Open to all students enrolled in primary, secondary schools, and post-secondary colleges and universities, trade or apprenticeship programs.
