download (1)Award-winning will judge MCC’s live-art scholarship competition from 4-7 p.m. on Friday, July 3 at the ArtHub at 402 E. Beale St. This is the first time in the contest’s two-year history that it is being held in conjunction with a community partner and Kingman’s monthly “First Friday” event.  The contest is open to the public, there is no cost to enter, and no formal education training is needed to participate. The one-hour competition will begin around 5 p.m. Winners receive scholarships to MCC’s visual communications program. Registration is due by 5 p.m. on Tuesday, June 30. For more information, go towww. .

At the start of the contest, participants will be given a “mystery box” of items that must be included in the design. Contestants will have one hour to plan, design, and visually communicate a word or concept that will also be revealed at the start of the competition. A panel will judge the artwork based on presentation and the creative use of all of the mystery items.  In this competition, participants compete for one of up to nine scholarships toward the visual communications associate of arts program at Mohave Community College: • A first-place winner of a $600 scholarship will be chosen from each MCC campus competition • One second-place winner of a $500 scholarship from each MCC campus competition • One third-place winner of a $400 scholarship from each MCC campus competition
• From the campus first-place winners, one overall winner will receive an additional $3,000 (which,
when combined with the $600 campus first-place prize, equals one-year’s tuition and standard fees
– 32 credit hours – at MCC) Students must indicate their interest by signing up at the student services office on the campus of their choice by Monday, June 29 by 4 p.m.
