Nickelodeon Scholarship

Award: $25,000

Eligibility: Ages 17-24

Deadline: September 14, 2015

We have all had positive influences in our lives – friends, family members, teachers, and yes, even cartoons! Nickelodeon’s original animated shows like Ren and Stimpy, Hey Arnold!, Avatar: The Last Airbender and SpongeBob SquarePants, have done more than redefine the style and nature of cartoons. They have made us laugh, taught us about friendship, and shown us what it means to be a kid.
Nickelodeon will soon celebrate 25 years of original animation, and we want you to help us pay tribute to your favorite Nicktoons and all things Nick! We want you to create your own, original animated short and show us what Nick means to you. Be creative, have fun, and don’t be afraid to show a little orange splatter or some green slime!
