Do you love fashion and want to turn your love of the industry into a career? The Art Institutes Passion for Fashion Competition gives high school students interested in the highly competitive fashion industry an opportunity to earn a full tuition scholarship to study in a fashion program at one of The Art Institutes schools.

Open to high school seniors throughout the U.S. and Canada, The Art Institutes Passion for Fashion Competition was created to encourage and reward young fashion talent at the high school level.

Bruce E. Dempsey, Vice President, Academic Affairs Specialist for The Art Institutes, said, "We have seen the caliber and maturity of the entries into the Competition increase every year.

There are so many wonderful fashion courses in high school, and many students see a career in this industry within their reach."

The competition consists of two categories, Fashion Design, and Fashion Marketing & Merchandising and Retail Management.

The grand prize in each category includes a full tuition scholarship to The Art Institutes school with a Fashion program at which the student entered the Competition.

In addition to a full tuition scholarship, the grand prize winning student in each category will receive an all-expense-paid trip to New York City for Fashion Week in February 2009, a "meet and greet" at Seventeen Magazine's offices and lunch with a Seventeen Magazine Style Pro.

Deadline for entries into the competition is November 21, 2008.

To be eligible, students must be a senior in high school, set to graduate in 2009, complete an Entry & Release form, have a minimum G.P.A of 2.0, write a short essay describing their interest in fashion and submit a finished, originally designed evening wear garment and process book, for the Fashion Design category or create a product or plan for the Fashion Marketing & Merchandising and Retail Management category (for complete details and official rules.
