Calling all Students!

                There’s a unique opportunity coming up this Fall for college graduate and undergraduate students interested in art and cycling.  The Association of Pedestrian and Bicycle Professionals (APBP) is giving five lucky students the opportunity to show their artwork at this year’s Professional Development Seminar in Charlotte!

Not only can the students share their art posters, but also their current school research, projects, or work-term experience on topics related to the Professional Development Seminar (PDS) themes. These themes include Complete Streets Design and Implementation, New Guidelines, Research and Standards, or Livability and Economic Development.

Unfortunately, I lack the slightest bit of artistic talent and can barely draw a tree, but there’s hope for people like me! 

Student APBP members interested in attending the 2011 PDS without submitting a poster may apply for a Susie Stephens Scholarship.

But wait there’s more! Each of the five winners will receive student scholarships to the 2011 PDS and up to a $100 travel stipend to attend the 2011 PDS in Charlotte, NC.

                I’m sure this is going to be a great event to attend with it’s with useful workshops and unbelievable artwork on display.  The event is on October 26th, 2011 but the artwork submission deadline is right around the corner on September 12th, 2011.
