The Traveling Nanny Donna Robinson
Nanny Sisterhood ScholarshipsThe Traveling Nanny celebrates the Nanny Sisterhood with two $100 INA Conference Scholarships! When my son Adam died in 2008, the sisterhood of nannies surrounded me with their compassion and love. These two scholarships are my way of letting you know how important the Sisterhood is to me!
Scholarship #1 I am a Great Nanny!
50 weeks a year you give your best to your children and families. You are confident that you are great at what you do!
Write a short 300 word essay telling me why you think "I am a Great Nanny" and submit to me by April 15th via email at email@example.com. Just by telling me a bit about yourself, you automatically qualify to have your name put in a "hat" . This is not a "best" essay contest! I just want you to take a moment and praise yourself! By just acknowledging you are a great nanny, you could win $100 to be used towards your INA conference fee, lodging, food or entertainment--think of it as your "happy" money! Hurry as the deadline for submitting is April 15th. The winner's name will be drawn and emailed on April 15th. Winner will be given their $100 upon arrival at the conference.
Scholarship #2 "I Love INA Conferences!"
You have attended at least 2 INA conferences in the past 10 years. You are committed to going to the 2011 conference. Email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) the years you have attended and a short 300 word essay "Why you would like to attend the 2011 Conference" and your name will be put into a "hat". This is not a best essay contest. I just want you to think about how conferences can help you. Maybe it's just the socialization and the feeling of sisterhood that inspires you each year! Maybe there is a workshop that has caught your interest. Just by entering, you are automatically in the drawing for a $100 scholarship. Hurry as the deadline for submitting is April 15th. Winner will be notified by email on April 15th. Winner will be given their $100 upon arrival at the conference. This "happy money" can be used to ease the cost of the conference fee, lodging, entertainment--you decide!
