We’re excited to share that we’re standing strong in our support of parks and recreation professionals with the launch of the 15th Annual State Speaker Scholarship program. The 2023-2024 scholarship program is all about bringing in amazing keynote speakers—experts in topics like play, inclusion, equity, urban parks planning or any professional development—to state parks and recreation associations’ annual or regional conferences.
So, what’s in it for the lucky recipients of the 2023-2024 scholarship? They will receive $3,000 to support the appearance of these remarkable speakers at the conferences. That’s right, we’ve increased the scholarship amount to ensure that these conferences are top-notch and filled with insightful discussions and eye-opening presentations.
The application is open! From now until May 31, 2024, you have the chance to apply for a scholarship, which will help support the appearance of a speaker who will dazzle your entire conference with their brilliance. Head on over to playlsi.com/speaker-scholarship/ to fill out the application today!
Let’s take a moment to reflect on the impact this scholarship program has made over the years. Since its inception back in 2009, we’ve awarded nearly 350 scholarships to state associations, contributing over $867,000 to support the appearances of these incredible speakers at park and recreation conferences across the nation.
