Congratulations to UW's WASLA Scholarship Winner!

University of Washington Student, Jennie Li, was awarded WASLA's 2015 ASLA Annual Meeting & Expo Scholarship. This award of $1250.00 will cover the costs for flight, hotel, conference registration, and food during the ASLA Annual Meeting dates from November 6th through 9th in Chicago. Jennie was awarded this scholarship by the Student and Emerging Professional committee for her outstanding written response to the WASLA scholarship application, which was released in June. While in Chicago, Jennie also plans to attend the walking tour "Urban Agriculture in Action" which highlights Chicago's use of rooftops to grow edible plants while also teaching the community green solutions and healthy habits. We look forward to hearing about her experience! 

We'd also like to give a huge THANK YOU to our sponsors, Maglin, RainBird, and Pacific Earth Works, Inc., for making this scholarship happen. Without their help and support of our organization, WASLA wouldn't have been able to give our state's students this opportunity!
