The “No Bullying on Broadway” Scholarship
Just Ask Marlene will now be offering a special “No Bullying on Broadway” full scholarship for students ages 14 to 18. This Scholarship is in partnership with the National Theatre for Student Artists’ 2018 summer program.
The National Theatre for Student Artists (NTSA) brings together young artists from across the country to stage new plays and musicals off-Broadway. JAM’s “No Bullying on Broadway” Scholarship Winner will receive a full scholarship for one of NTSA’s three-week programs, valued at $4,970. This experience offers the Scholarship winner – actor or director, a chance to couple their once in a lifetime theatre arts experience with a critical Anti-Bullying message.
“With over 160,000 students skipping school every day for fear of being bullied, and given the mission of JAM, I feel a responsibility to help get the No Bullying message out there*. Using the JAM social media platform with over 50,000 in the network, JAM’s scholarship winner will carve out some time from rehearsals for his or her role as the No Bullying on Broadway social media correspondent relating an ongoing message of anti-bullying. It is a goal to use my voice of authority to help empower young people with an Anti-Bullying movement.” says Marlene Wallach, president of Wilhelmina Kids & Teens and Just Ask Marlene.
