Travel Scholarships Available for Downtown Revitalization Conference

The Wyoming Main Street Program is offering travel scholarships to a conference that will help participants revitalize and build vibrant commercial districts in Wyoming’s downtowns. Several scholarships are available for the National Main Streets Conference in New Orleans, in April of next year.  The trip includes a Wyoming Main Street sponsored pre-trip to tour Main Street communities in Mississippi and Louisiana,to learn how Main Street principles are being applied in other communities.  

The conference brings together people from communities of all sizes to network, discuss issues, and learn new ideas and solutions for growing and developing downtown revitalization programs.  This year’s conference will focus on cultural economy. Wyoming Main Street Senior Specialist Britta Fuller says that this will be the 7th annual pre-trip.

The scholarships cover airfare to and from an applicant’s nearest airport and New Orleans, conference registration fees, and lodging during the pre-trip and conference. Scholarship applications are due to Wyoming Main Street no later than Feb. 1, 2013. Applications are available here: http://www.wyomingbusiness.org/p....
