Jackson Hole High School student Elizabeth Chambers is one of four local area high school students attending the 23rd Jackson Hole Writers Conference on a scholarship. The scholarships are from a grant from the Cultural Council of Jackson Hole. We are excited that she is a repeat scholarship recipient as she added a lot to our conference last year and fully participated in the poetry track.
In addition to the registration fees, the recipients also can have three critiques with established writers.
Caroline Berner from the Community School, Maxine Hansford from Journeys School, and Riley Liljestrom, also from JHHS, also received scholarships thru CCJH.
We at the conference look forward to having these young writers attend.
I appreciate all of the recommendations from school officials and teachers on who would be good candidates for these scholarships. We hope to offer the same level next year.
