The SCBWI New England Ann Barrow Scholarship

I am honored to have been chosen as the Recipient of the Ann Barrow Scholarship at the 2012 New England SCBWI Conference!

The Ann Barrow Scholarship is awarded to an illustrator based on the quality of a submitted portfolio of ten images. The winner receives one day's free tuition to the SCBWI New England event of their choice during the next calendar year.

Ann Barrow, an important member of SCBWI New England, illustrated over 20 children's books including Big Blue, published by Charlesbridge in 2004, Butterflies in My Garden, published by Mondo in 2003 and Growing up Abenaki, written by Joseph Bruchec, published by Rigby in 2003. Her career began in 1977 and included book jackets, children's magazines, greeting cards, giftware and portraiture. Ann passed away in 2006. In her memory, the SCBWI New England Memory Fund created this scholarship.
