The New Media Expo team is thrilled to announce the winner and first and second runners up of the New Media Expo University scholarship. We received almost 300 entries and every single one of them had something to offer. Our judges, Blogger Kelby Carr, Podcaster Todd Cochrane and WebTV Producer Jeff Keonig took their jobs seriously and chose finalists based on experience, talent, passion for learning and ability to use their new found knowledge well into the future. Make no mistake, our winners are going to be forces to be reckoned with.
Congratulations to scholarship winner Allissa Richardson, who will attend New Media Expo on our dime. We’re going to fly Allissa to Las Vegas, offer her lodging at the Rio and provide a top-notch educational experience at New Media Expo. We chose Allissa as our scholarship winner because she’s already doing good things. She’s using her knowledge to help others learn how to create slick videos using their smartphones. Allissa has so much to offer content creators and her time at NMX will help to not only elevate her career, but also to enrich her students’ lives.
Please meet Allissa Richardson:
Congratulations also to first runner up Riley Blanton and second runner up Jen Reeves. They are also receiving complimentary content creator passes. We look forward to seeing good things from them in the future.
