The Carrie Benton Scholarship is named after camper Carrie Benton from the Phoenix Improv Scene. Carrie was an amazing spirit and frequented our camps. She was a sweet, kind and passionate soul who was a natural at improv. Carrie loved writing and reading and we would love to honor that with having you write an essay that answers the question “How has improv made your life better?”
The Improv Utopia Board and Carrie’s daughter and fellow camper Shae Benton will choose a camper for each one of our US camps, East, West and Yosemite. The chosen recipient will get their full tuition paid for. You will be selected based on your essay. Submissions are now open. You can leave your essay in the message section below or e-mail a PDF or a Word Document to nick@Improvutopia.com.
