MCC Success by Design overall artworkMOHAVE COUNTY–Students and community members have the chance to compete for college scholarships during a one-hour live-art competition. There is no cost to enter Mohave Community College’s bi-annual “Success by Design” competition to be offered in Bullhead City, Lake Havasu City, and Kingman. Registration is due by 5 p.m. on Tuesday, June 30.
The competition will be offered from 2-5 p.m. on Wednesday, July 1 in Building 200 on MCC’s Bullhead City campus at 3400 Highway 95; from 2-5 p.m. on Wednesday, July 1 in Building 600 on the Lake Havasu City campus at 1977 Acoma Blvd., West, and from 4-7 p.m. on Friday, July 3 at the ArtHub at 402 E. Beale St. in Kingman.
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. Third-place winners from each campus contest will receive a $400 scholarship; second-place winners from each campus will receive a $500 scholarship and first-place winners will each receive a $600 scholarship.
From the first place winners, a grand prize winner will be chosen to receive an additional scholarship that will equal a one-year “full-ride” scholarship. Scholarships distributed through the contest can only be applied to MCC tuition and fees for the visual communications program. They cannot be transferred or redeemed for cash.
There is no fee to enter. Entry forms are available at and in the student services offices on each campus. The forms must be turned in by 5 p.m. on Tuesday, June 30 to the student services offices in Building 200 on the Bullhead City campus at 3400 Highway 95, in Building 200 on the Lake Havasu City campus at 1977 Acoma Blvd., West and in Building 107 on the Neal Campus-Kingman at 1971 Jagerson Ave.
