Charles J. Thurmond Youth Art Scholarship Awards Kiwanis Club of Gainesville’s P

The Kiwanis Club of Gainesville is pleased to announce the 15th Annual Charles J. Thurmond Youth Art Scholarship Awards.

The scholarships and the event have been named to honor an outstanding Gainesvillian and Kiwanian, Charles J. Thurmond.  In his honor, and in memory of their true friendship, another Gainesvillian, who wishes to remain anonymous, has made a significant contribution to our Club in an effort to recognize the artistic accomplishments of our youth.  

All of this information will be available on the Kiwanis Club of Gainesville web site: 

The Charles J. Thurmond Youth Art Scholarship Awards provides scholarships to the top three places in the Performing, Visual and Writing Arts.  The Kiwanis Club of Gainesville will present the following scholarship awards for the Best of Show in the Performing, Visual and Writing Arts:

  • 1st place    $2,500
  • 2nd place    $1,500
  • 3rd place    $1,000

The scholarships will be awarded in the same manner as the Kiwanis District Scholarship Awards.  Upon the student’s enrollment to college, he/she will notify the Kiwanis Club of Gainesville, and a check will be sent directly to the school.

For all of you who have previously been involved in these Kiwanis contests, your role as educators and supporters of the events have been outstanding.  It is because of your support and the success of our past collective efforts, that the Kiwanis Club of Gainesville has been presented the opportunity to establish the Youth Arts Scholarship Awards in memory of Mr. Thurmond.

Enclosed you will find an announcement, including contest rules, timeline of events, applications, etc. for each of these events.  We have attempted to reach the appropriate educators and instructors at each of the local school and home school organizations with this mailing.  However, please feel free to forward this information to anyone else at your school/organization that would share in this interest.  Please note that this contest is limited to Hall County.

Thank you for supporting these events and encouraging your students to participate!
