Graphic Design Degree Hub is pleased to announce that we have awarded our 2020 Creativity Scholarship to Kelly Dizon of Simi Valley, CA. This $1,500 scholarship is designed to promote study in graphic design and related disciplines.
We had 13 applicants for the 2020 fall semester award. All were strong, but Kelly Dizon stood out for her talent, energy, and her commitment to use her art to help others understand our various cultures and issues today.
Kelly attended Santa Susana Magnet High School in Simi Valley, CA, a school that specializes in the arts and technology. During her senior year, Kelly was the main graphic designer and head section editor of Technical Arts for her school’s award-winning yearbook. After the yearbook was completed, she received the Danny Sanchez award given by her teacher for being the class’s “Most Valuable Player.” She also earned certification with High Honors in Digital Arts and Technology in the School of Technical Arts. She served as a publicist for several clubs including Key Club, KPOP Dance Club, and Bollywood Dance Club. As the publicist, she designed graphics and event posters to promote these clubs.
Kelly, a Phillipino-American, said in her application letter, “My aspiration in life is to create art that inspires and educates all people about different cultures as well as ongoing issues in the world.” She is attending the California Institute of the Arts.
Graphic Design Degree Hub is very proud of Kelly and we wish her the best in her life goals!
