The Art Institutes is sponsoring the Passion for Fashion Competition.

The competition is open to high school students throughout the U.S., Canada (excluding Quebec) and Puerto Rico, with a passion for Fashion Design or Fashion Marketing & Merchandising and Retail Management.

There are two categories for the competition, Fashion Design and Fashion Marketing & Merchandising and Retail Management.

Entries must be postmarked by November 19, 2010.

Local competitions will take place at each participating Art Institutes school throughout U.S. and Canada. Each local winner will earn a $3,000 tuition scholarship to The Art Institutes school they represent in the competition. Local first place winners in each category will move on to the national competition.

The national grand prize winners in both categories will earn a full tuition scholarship to their respective Art Institutes school. In addition, the winners will receive a VIP trip to Fashion Week in New York City in February 2011, participate in a “meet and greet” at Seventeen Magazine’s New York City offices, and lunch with a Seventeen Magazine Style Pro.
