Would you like Slow Food Austin to send you to the conference? Send us an essay of 150 words or less, telling us why you’d like to attend the conference and how you’ll share what you learn there with the Slow Food board and its members. Be creative!

Essays should be emailed to Cindy Scovel (cindy@slowfoodaustin.org). Entries must be received by 5PM CST on Monday, January 28. The scholarship recipient will be announced on February 1.
