It’s Time to Vote for your Favorite Finalist Entry in the
2013 Frame My Future Scholarship Contest

Your Vote can Help a Student Win Money for College!


April 2, 2013- Monroe, CT — Church Hill Classics (CHC), a leading manufacturer and online retailer in the college diploma frame industry, announced today their selection for the 24 Finalists in their 5th annual Frame My Future Scholarship Contest.

This nationwide Frame My Future Scholarship Contest 2013 asked students to submit an original “creation” expressing what they hope to achieve in their personal and professional life after college. The entry needed to communicate: This is how I “Frame My Future”. Submissions were accepted from October 2, 2012 through March 5, 2013. Over 9,200 entries were received, including photographs, poems, essays, collages, artwork, graphic design, and other imaginative pieces. The contest was open to all students who plan to attend college on a full-time basis in the 2013-2014 academic year.

“Every year that we host the Frame My Future Scholarship Contest, we are always impressed by students’ talent,” CHC President Lucie Voves said, “though this makes the selection process much more difficult.  It’s great to be able to give back to students interested in pursuing their dreams of a college education with this unique and creative way to earn a scholarship.”
 
According to Voves, the 24 Finalists represent only .26% of the total entries. After a panel of judges at CHC narrowed down entries, all employees participated in a companywide voting process which yielded 24 Finalists and 37 Honorable Mentions.

The 24 Finalist entries are posted on the company’s diplomaframe.com website, visit: www.diplomaframe.com/FMF2013finalists

The company invites members of the public to vote for their favorite entry during the final phase of the contest; this will determine the scholarship winners. Voting runs from April 2 to May 2, 2013. A scholarship of $1,000 will be awarded to each of the five top-voted entries, and the entry receiving the most votes will also earn a matching donation of $1,000 toward the entrant’s college or university’s scholarship endowment fund, in their name.

The Finalists, their hometowns, and the schools they plan to attend this fall are as follows:

  • Matthew Laiosa from Slingerlands, NY – Fashion Institute of Design or School of Visual Arts
  • Chi Le from Chapel Hill, NC – Duke University or Emory University
  • Gaelyn Lindauer from Hollis, ME – Hampshire College, Amherst College or Bennington College
