PITTSBURGH, Aug. 22, 2009/ — The Art Institutes Passion for Fashion Competition 2010 provides high school students an exciting glimpse of the highly competitive fashion industry by offering students interested in Fashion Design or Fashion Marketing, Merchandising or Retail Management an opportunity to win a full-tuition scholarship to study fashion at one of The Art Institutes schools.
Open to high school seniors across North America, The Art Institutes Passion for Fashion Competition was created to encourage and reward young fashion design and fashion marketing, merchandising and retail management talent at the high school level.
The competition consists of two categories: 1) Fashion Design and 2) Fashion Marketing & Merchandising and Retail Management. The grand prize winner in each category earns a full-tuition scholarship to an Art Institutes school to study in a fashion program.
