Student Creative Event

The NCA is excited to present a wonderful opportunity for a costume design scholarship. We will be holding our 5th Student Creative Event that is open to all costume and fashion design students. The competition will conclude with a runway show and a project presentation at the conference site in Kansas City on that weekend. One $1500 scholarship will be given to the winner. Student memberships to the National Costumers Association will be given to all finalists.

To qualify, the student must complete and submit an application by April 1, 2019. They must present their completed costume in a video presentation by May 31, 2019.  At this time up to 6 finalists will be chosen.  Students may use a costume designed in a class project.  The finalists will be notified and will be asked to present their entire project to the general membership in a runway show at the convention.  The finalists will need to present their complete project in a display which needs to include the costume and a written presentation of all design materials requested. If the student is unable to attend, they may send their entire project including costume to be modeled or displayed during the event. All materials will be returned to the contestant at the completion of the conference.

We hope this will be a fun and exciting competition that will introduce your students to the world of costume design and the National Costumers Association.
