The Chubby Honey Scholarship
This scholarship acts as our "Honorable Mention" and the honoree will be decided by the Scholarship Committee, via applying and interviewing the Aspiring & Established Awards. Same deadlines apply.
Broad Ideas artist Mackenzie Witman created this opportunity in 2022
and it continues on now in partnership of her sister, Kitrina Keeton.
"In our lives, one of our biggest supporters was our grandmother, affectionately called Chubby Honey by our grandfather and eventually Kitrina as well. Chubby Honey encouraged, supported, and instilled in both Kitrina and I a love of the arts. When Kitrina and I won the scholarship for Broad Ideas we immediately started thinking of ways to give back to the organization and for the second year in a row we are happy to sponsor this prize. We want to continue in Chubby's footsteps and help another artist achieve their dreams. We hope that even just this small amount helps another artist see their value and worth, the way our grandmother helped us see ours."
Mackenzie also created a $50 writing honorarium in 2023. This awarded to a Spoken Word performer that speaks creates important and powerful pieces. It is support the bravery and power of telling our stories.
Thank you Mackenzie & Kitrina!
