With the 2011 North American Wine Bloggers Conference less than 6 months away, it’s good to know that there are still opportunities out there for people to attend. Layer Cake and winemaker Jayson Woodbridge have endowed a scholarship to help wine bloggers attend the conference with $5,000. This annual endowment has been put in place so that wine bloggers without the financial means to travel to the location of the Wine Bloggers Conference can still have the opportunity to attend this unique event.
Last years scholarship helped 8 wine bloggers attend the conference in Walla Walla, Washington, and if you believe you qualify for the scholarship, you should check out the Wine Bloggers Conference website (http://wbcscholarship.com/america/) to get all the details and fill out the application. The deadline for applications is June 1st.
As a wine blogger who is fortunate enough to be able to attend the 2011 Wine Blogger’s Conference through my own means (it being in my home state helps), I’m glad to see Jayson Woodbridge and Layer Cake helping my fellow bloggers attend.
