The Dallas Area Alliance for Women in Media Foundation is in full swing. Here are our exciting opportunities and events coming up:
AWM Gala Student Scholarship Applications due March 14th
The Dallas Area Alliance for Women in Media Foundation, Inc. will award a scholarship in the amount of $2,500.00 in the names of Irene Runnels, a distinguished and respected Dallas broadcaster and Paula McStay, a former Fort Worth advertising executive. This scholarship, available in early 2014, will be administered through the University Financial Aid Office and must be applied toward undergraduate or graduate tuition only.
The Irene Runnels-Paula McStay scholarship will be awarded to a student attending a Texas public or private university that offers radio, television, film, public relations, advertising/communications or broadcasting as the major emphasis of study.
Applicants will be considered on the basis of educational and career goals in their major field of study, activities and honors, service to community and references. The deadline for applications is March 14, 2014. The scholarship will be acknowledged at the AWM Gala on April 17, 2014.

News from Southwest Media Reps - Showdown Set for May 8th
Get ready for Showdown POOLSIDE! This year Showdown will be held at Sisu, a resort oasis deep in the heart of Uptown. It’s on Maple Ave. right across the street from The Crescent.
There will be plenty of great food and complimentary beer. There is no official pre-party this year, so the Showdown start time has been moved up to 3pm. Arrive early and enjoy the beautiful poolside patio…and yes you can swim if you’d like.
Tickets on sale now: $50 before April 1st, $75 before May 1st, $100 at the door, so make sure to get your tickets early.
Also, please send old Showdown photos/buttons to Zach Wohldmann (firstname.lastname@example.org). He’d like to make a big collage of them on the website for all to see.
To purchase tickets, go to: http://bit.ly/Showdown14_EarlyBird. A portion of the proceeds will benefit DREAM Fund. Please spread the word and invite all of your media friends!
