UChic Hot List: Knitting Scholarship

Do you love to knit, crochet, or sew? Here's a scholarship that can earn you some recognition for your skills and some good money to boot: The American Sheep Industry Association's (who knew it even existed!) annual Make It Yourself With Wool Contest.

Contestants must construct and model their own garments made from wool or a wool blend. Winners at the state level advance to the national competition. National level winners are awarded scholarships of either $1,000 or $2,000. The objective of the contest is to "promote the beauty and versatility of wool fabrics and yarns" and "encourage personal creativity in sewing, knitting and crocheting with wool fabrics and yarns."

Learn more about the contest by going to the contest FAQ. Good luck!
