With your support, we will be able to provide tuition scholarships towards our twelve-month Career Technical Education program (Scholooza) in the field of Special Events & Coordination for up to (50) students and those pursuing their higher education throughout NEO.
The Battle of the Teal – 4EDU is a fun-filled fundraising event that promotes awareness of higher education opportunities for youth and showcases young artistic talents who are competing for a grand prize. Participation in the event connects youth with the community, builds their self-esteem, and instills leadership in our youth, our future.
Participants in the competition can choose from the whole range of artistic forms to express themselves, be it performance art such as dance, comedy, or music, or visual arts like photography or painting…any art form is welcome!
The crowd will cheer on and vote for their favorite and the show’s overall winner who will receive scholarship money and/or cash to help support their college education.
Who will take home the grand prize in 2018?
Courtney Owens, our two-time champion (2016, 2017) delivered a strong poetry performance that won the hearts of the crowd. Combined, she took home $5,500 in scholarship and cash.
The event is created by iN Education, Inc., an Akron-based non-profit organization dedicated to instilling a love for learning and to providing educational programs to pre-K through 12th-grade students that strengthen their learning outcomes and prepare them for college and technical career fields.
