Hannah Woo Wins Handmade Arcade Youth Maker Scholarship

Senior Hannah Woo has earned a 2018 Handmade Arcade Youth Maker Scholarship. Hannah, who creates hand-sculpted polymer clay charms and figurines for her Etsy shop KikiReadsComics, was chosen to receive the scholarship as one of 10 submissions from more than 400 in a jury-reviewed selection process.

As a scholarship recipient, she will have a booth at the Handmade Arcade on December 8, Pittsburgh's largest independent craft fair, and stipend to produce her charms and figurines. Scholarship recipients will also receive mentoring from Pittsburgh's professional maker community, learn a variety of skills for business success, and have the opportunity to network with a global community of DIY artists online.

Congratulations, Hannah!
