Announcing the 2010 Expat Youth Scholarship Finalists!

We are pleased to announce the winners of Clements International’s 2010 Expat Youth Scholarship! We received 500 entries and awarded a total of $10,000 to six outstanding students.

This year’s scholarship contest asked expat students to answer the question, “Where would you go in your flying house?” Participants drew on their experiences living in a foreign country to imagine where their journey might take them next through an essay and creative image/photograph incorporating the contest’s flying house illustration. Three winners in two age categories were selected by a distinguished panel of judges from the expatriate community.
