June 1, 2021: Applications for this scholarship are now closed. 

Each year, we provide thousands of dollars in scholarships to students from each school we work with. For the last couple years, we have been offering giveaways on Instagram. This year, we decided to combine these two ways of supporting our student community — a scholarship contest on social!

Starting May 1st, we will be accepting applications for our first online scholarship contest and will be giving away $1000 to one lucky #Grad2021 student.


To qualify, there are a few things you have to do:

Part One - Spread the Word on Social Media


  1. Follow us on IG or Facebook

  2. Like the contest post

  3. Tag three friends you think should apply too

  4. Post in your stories and tag us

Part Two - Tell Us What Matters to You


Submit a one-page essay (about 500 words) or short video (no more than 4 minutes) on one of the following topics:

Option 1: How has Covid-19 impacted your grad year? What have you learned?
Option 2: What do grad photos mean to you? Why are they important?

Option 3: Tell us why student mental health matters to you.

In your submission, please be sure to clearly state what topic you chose. If there is inappropriate or offensive language, images, or anything that would not be acceptable at school, you will not be considered. 

The winner will be chosen based on the following criteria:


- Creativity

- Insightfulness

- Overall presentation


The Fine Print:


This contest is not sponsored, endorsed or administered by, or associated with, Instagram or Facebook. The contest is open to all secondary graduates of 2021 who live in British Columbia, Canada only. Both part one and two must be completed for your application to be considered complete. You do not need to have been photographed by Artona to apply.

This contest is not open to university grads, Artona influencers and Artona staff members.


The deadline to apply is May 31, 2021 at 11:59 pm PST. The winner will be chosen by Artona team leaders and contacted directly by email by June 30, 2021.
