Family Travel Forum Teen Travel Writing Scholarship 2012
Have you ever taken an unexpectedly wonderful -- or terrible but funny -- trip with your family? Have advice on how to make the most of a cultural experience or destination? Have you gone somewhere -- near or far -- that opened up new ways of looking at the world?
Family Travel Forum (FTF), the web's leading trip-planning resource for family travelers, and the Society of American Travel Writers are offering a scholarship to encourage teens to share their travel experiences.
The rules of the annual FTF Teen Travel Writing Scholarship are simple: Submit a travel blog about where you went and what it meant to you, what worked and what didn't, what you learned from the trip, or how it changed you. Use words, images and video to share your adventure with other travelers -- it can be funny, serious or contemplative -- as long as it's informative.
The top three winners will receive cash awards. Twenty-five finalists will win honorable mention awards and travel gifts. For more details on entering, view this video and enter by August 1, 2012.
