If you are a college student or know someone who is in/going to head off to college AND is a knitter, you/they may be eligible to win a scholarship of $3,000 from Jimmy Beans Wool! How fantastic is that?
From their website:
The Beans for Brains scholarship is a merit-based scholarship open to all students attending an accredited institution in the fall of 2011. Applicants must know how to knit or crochet, must provide an original pattern or a photo of a recent project, and must be ok with us publishing their photo in future media ventures. We heartily encourage our customers attending school, or their children/grandchildren to apply. The scholarship is open to undergraduate, graduate, and professional school students in any course of study.
