CHAMP ALLEN MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP



Laura Allen has decided to honor Champ Allen by annually giving away the Champ Allen Memorial Scholarship, beginning at the 2018 World Massage Festival. She has been joined by Annie Powell of The World Skin Project, making this scholarship worth $1,000. This scholarship is to be used for continuing education and related travel expenses in the area of massage for medically frail populations, such as oncology massage, hospice massage, or massage in clinical settings such as a hospital or nursing home. You must be present at the Festival to win.

"It so happens that my dear friend Christine Courtney from Ireland is teaching Oncology Massage at the 2018 Festival in Las Vegas, so you could use the scholarship right there on the spot."

If you would like to receive an application, please download it here from these links or email festival@worldmassagefestival.com.

BONNIE PRUDDEN MEMORIAL AWARD

Bonnie Prudden, fitness pioneer and founder of Bonnie Prudden Myotherapy®, passed away at her home in Tucson on December 11, 2011. She was 97. "You can't turn back the clock, but you can wind it up again," she told her students and patients, and that is how she lived her life.

Bonnie was the first person inducted into the Massage Therapy Hall of Fame. In her honor, each year we will pick one name from all the therapists registered and attending the World Massage Festival. That person will never again pay a registration fee to attend the Festival. Drawing is at 12:30 PM on August 7, 2018 in the vending hall. MUST BE PRESENT TO WIN.

She honored us by attending the very first Festival in 2006 and giving the keynote speech. In celebration of her life, we give this scholarship.
