The Wyoming Main Street Program is offering travel scholarships to the National Main Streets Conference in New Orleans, La., April 14-16, 2013.  The trip includes a Wyoming Main Street sponsored pre-trip to tour Main Street communities in Mississippi and Louisiana, April 12-13, to learn how Main Street principles are being applied in other communities.  Britta Fuller, Wyoming Main Street Program Senior Main Street Specialist, says this year’s conference will focus on cultural economy.

The scholarships cover airfare to and from an applicant’s nearest airport and New Orleans, conference registration fees, and lodging during the pre-trip and conference. Scholarship applications are due to Wyoming Main Street no later than Feb. 1, 2013.  Application packets must include a completed application form.

Scholarships will only be offered to individuals who are residents of a Wyoming municipality and associated with, or supported by, one of the following organizations:  local government, downtown association or its equivalent, downtown merchants association, urban renewal authority, downtown development authority, chamber of commerce, historic preservation organization, or other community organizations intended to revitalize a historic downtown.

Notification of scholarship awards will be made from the Wyoming Main Street staff on or around Feb. 6, 2013.  Recipients are asked to give a report to their local city/town council as well as the Wyoming Main Street Advisory Board about the information learned on the trip and how it will help their community.
