Texas Renaissance Festival School Days coordinator Kim Bryant recently announced the 2020 recipients of the four $1,500 scholarships that are awarded annually in the categories of Fine Arts, Education, Humanities and Participation. TRF School Days Scholarship applicants represent graduating seniors in public, private and home schools. Each applicant must meet criteria such as academic, achievement and extracurricular, and submit an essay.
“We created the School Days Scholarship Program to reward those students who show great promise and enrich their respective communities. In this challenging year, we are glad to do what we can to support area students in the pursuit of their goals and dreams and wish them the very best in their new endeavors,” said Bryant.
The 2020 Texas Renaissance Festival School Days Scholarship Winners are as follows: Participant: Jackson Barr, St. Thomas Episcopal High School; Fine Arts: Isabelle Nuzzo, Memorial High School; Education: Emma Kent, The Woodlands High School; and Humanities: McKenna Tanner, Stratford High School.
The Texas Renaissance Festival School Days are two exciting days of competition, performance, education through artisan demonstrations, entertainment by select TRF stage acts and musicians, shopping, food, and interaction with TRF cast. This year’s School Days are planned for Nov. 4 and 5. New to this year’s slate of competitions, which includes trebuchet, costume, art, photography, drama, band, orchestra, choral and essay, is the student Mariachi Contest that will be held Nov. 4.
