As a member of Marinello Schools of Beauty, Brio Academy will host their annual $10,000 High School Raw Talent Scholarship Contest starting on March 7, 2012. High School Seniors will be able to showcase their natural talents and take advantage of this exciting opportunity! Brio Academy will award more than $10,000 in scholarships to eligible high school students in as easy as one-two-three.
Step 1 – Essay Portion
Candidates will be required to submit an essay targeting how they are going to make a difference in the beauty industry “as a career” with emphasis on “What will I do to make a difference?” The essay will be graded by the High School Scholarship Committee, which will evaluate the essay based on content, creativity, spelling, syntax and grammar. The essay must be due with an attached Marinello application. The application is available online at www.marinello.com/scholarship, postmarked by midnight of April 30, 2012
Step 2 – Competition Portion
The competition is scheduled to begin May 7, 2012 and run through May 18, 2012. Candidates interested in Cosmetology will be performing formal “updo” hairstyles-Wedding, Prom or Special Events. Candidates interested in the Esthetics (Skin Care) program will perform makeup.
Video recordings of the actual practical portion of the scholarship requirement would be highly recommended; however, not a requirement. Judging will be based only on the final look, not the process and is based on the photographs. Before and after photographs, and the graded essays, will be reviewed and judged by the Scholarship Committee to determine awards.
Step 3 – Scholarship Winner Announced
The Marinello Schools of Beauty Fourth Annual Scholarship Contest winner will be announced
30 days after the competition.
