SFSFC Awards SMOFCon Scholarships
We actually made the decision on these awards back in September, but there was a delay in getting an acceptance confirmation. We obviously couldn't announce them, or even tell the other applicants they hadn't won, until we got confirmations from all the winners.( Press release text; many of you will have seen this elsewhere if my press-release announcements list is workingCollapse )
I'm pleased we were able to present these scholarships again, and hope we do so next year as well. I know I find SMOFCon valuable, and I think it's an important thing to encourage people to learn how others run their conventions. We get better conventions when we're communicating with each other, and not just by e-mail, LJ, etc. There's still value in in-person meetings.
