LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT US:
New Visions for Public Schools is dedicated to ensuring that all New York City public school students, regardless of race or economic class, can fully participate as citizens and economic actors nationally and internationally. Further, we are committed to sharing innovative tools, strategies and lessons learned in New Visions schools with others in New York and throughout the country to prove that meaningful change is achievable at scale and success is possible for every child.
Throughout our 20-year history, we have worked intensively with a core group of schools while fashioning strategies to improve student achievement across the board. Today, with 76 schools serving more than 34,000 students, we support a network similar in size to some of the nations largest school districts. We are committed to proving what no urban district has yet to realize: that large numbers of urban students can graduate on time and be successful in college and in the workplace.
The Scholarship Guide for New York City Students provides a diverse listing of over 100 scholarship opportunities available to a wide range of New York City students.
HERE IS WHAT WE NEED:
We need a cover design concept which is attractive and conceptually sound. Since the final bound book is going to be saddle-stitched (stapled), we can accept a cover design that wraps around the front and back of the book, (but front and back is not necessary). No spine design is required.
The final size is going to be 8.5 x 11 when folded (8.5 x 22 with the front and back)
The scholarships in our guide afford the opportunity for young people to gain access to educational experiences they might have had otherwise. We want the ideas inherent in "scholarships" and New York City to be conveyed on the cover.
The following words and phrases are relevant and may be useful for you:
Positivity, forward momentum, moving on to a brighter future, optimism, threshold, peak, horizon, excelling, academics, assertiveness, decisiveness, resources, lifeline, bridge, bridging the gap, blasting off, good to go, doorway, transitioning, living your dreams, changing, growing up , realizing your potential.
OUR TARGET AUDIENCE IS:
New York City public high school students
WE LIKE THESE DESIGNS:
We like the designs we have used in the past, but are open to moving in a new direction, so please feel free to be creative. This guide is for high school students and should appeal to their aesthetic.
WE ABSOLUTELY MUST HAVE (or we don't want to see) THIS IN OUR DESIGN:
> The title is: Scholarships for New York City Students 20092010
> The title should be presented in Gotham Black. if you don't own Gotham Black, then use a comparable sans-serif and we will swap the typeface before we send the file to print.
