HOW Design Live Grant: Apply today

Awhile back, I told you about the HOW Veterans Grant. This grant, organized and funded by generous, seasoned HOW Design Live attendees, will fund one HOW conference newbie to attend all four HOW Design Live conferences in San Francisco. That’s a pretty sweet deal. The deadline for submissions is tomorrow, Friday, May 10 at midnight (CDST), so apply today.

HOW Veterans GrantTo enter, you’ll need to answer “Why should you go to HOW?” with one of the following: a  one-page written answer, an 8.5 x 11″(or smaller) poster, or a 30-second (or less) video.  Email your answer and submission form to

Your submission will then be reviewed by a few of this year’s HOW speakers who will select a dozen or so submissions. The voting will open to the public on May 14th, and the grant recipient will be announced on May 27th.

You already know why you should go to HOW. Now it’s time to tell to folks who want to help you get to San Francisco! So, go ahead, apply to the HOW Veteran’s Grant today.

And for you veterans out there, you can help out by donating to the grant to ensure that a talented, lucky newbie can attend or spreading the word about this campaign.
