Do you know any young genealogists who would love to goteal_footsteps_walking_456 to the Southern California Genealogy Jamboree? Encourage them to apply for a $500 cash award and free conference registration.

The Suzanne Winsor Freeman Memorial Grant Committee is now accepting applications for its 2013 Student Genealogy Grant. As they did last year, the SCGS Jamboree will provide the grant recipient with free three-day registration. Genealogists between the ages of 18 and 25 who have attended school in the last 12 months are eligible to apply. The recipient must attend the 2013 SCGS Jamboree in Burbank, California to receive the award.

I can tell you from personal experience¬† that Jamboree is one of the family history world’s most fun educational experiences! It’s a perfect place for a young person to further his or her genealogical learning and make personal and professional connections that can last a lifetime

Complete details and application materials are available at The Family Curator. The application deadline is 18 March 2013 midnight PST. I hope you’ll forward this post to any young people who should apply!
