2008 Scholarship Finalists: Finalists 1-2

by Grace Bonney

sifting through nearly 2,000 applicants for this year’s scholarship was a herculean task. i was completely bowled over by the talent and thoughtfulness of each applicant. to narrow this group down to a top eleven twelve would only have been possible with the help and input of our judging panel: the d*s staff (contributing writers and ad team) and this year’s scholarship sponsors: domino magazine, 2modern, and paper studio. we narrowed it to a top ten and i had to add one two more candidate that i felt really deserved to be in the final round. 2 finalists will be introduced every hour until 1pm, at which point the voting survey will become active and votes will be recorded. voting will continue until 10pm next thursday, may 22. and our winners will be announced the next day, friday may 23. and now, for our first two finalists- drumroll please…..
