About the InstaGrant Spectacular

Eleven InstaGrant participants will be selected from around the state to receive a scholarship covering complimentary registration and a travel/accommodations honorarium* in the amount of $175 to cover two-day participation. In return they will present at an all-conference opening session and at the end if selected as a finalist. Applications will be accepted through July 17, 2018.
