KETCHIKAN - The application for the Sam Pitcher Music Scholarship is now available. The scholarship was established to honor the memory of Seming "Sam" Pitcher, an active Ketchikan musician.
Awards of up to $1,000 will be provided to Ketchikan youth in grades 7-12 for use at a summer music program. Awards will be based on the applicant's musical ability, goals and motivation. It is the applicant's responsibility to research programs and provide requested information to the selection committee. Applicants must complete the application form, submit a minimum of two reference forms with at least one completed by a music educator, and if you are selected as a finalist you may be contacted regarding an audition in January.
Applications are available at http://www.ketchikanarts.org/, from McPherson's Music or at the Arts Council at 330 Main Street. The final deadline for applications is January 1, 2010.
