Description

Established in 2006, the 1800wheelchair scholarship fund now bestows two $500 awards each year. We are going to repeat our visual contest. Please submit a 'visual poem', in a style of your choosing, on the theme of overcoming a personal challenge. Limit your 'visual poem' to an 8.5in x 11in piece of paper. You can choose to represent words, images, or both. It can abstract or representational. Please include a personal statement that gives us an idea of who you are and how your poem relates to a challenge you've faced. The poem and essay (combined) should be between 500 and 1,000 words, but feel free to write a little more or less. http://www.1800wheelchair.com/scholarship/
